Google Chrome Gets RSS Support Feature Finally

by Chrome Blog on January 21, 2009

Much has been talked about speed of internet. Now it’s the time to talk about the speed of a browser. Google Chrome is the perfect topic to discuss. It is a gift to us from Google. Released out of beta status in December last year, this net browser has covered the market. People are using chrome as browser, but it lacks a handful of features. It lacks the support for RSS feeds.

The Mac version of Chrome is underway already as we know. The best way to use add-ons in Google Chrome is via browser bookmarklets. To work with RSS there are two new ways. Also you can employ the use of this browser bookmarklets.

Self-Detecting RSS in Chrome

If you visit http://www.feeds.ramisp.org then you will find that there are two bookmarklets available. They are “View RSS Feed” and “Auto-Detect RSS.” What you have to do is to drag these bookmarklets to the browser’s bookmark bar. Now whenever you are on such page on web where there is RSS feed, you only have to hit the “Auto-Detect RSS” button. Automatically you will be taken to the page where the feed is displayed along with many auto-subscription links at the top. Alternate to it you can just hit “view RSS feed,” if you want to see the feed here on the browser.

One of the main defect of this ramisp org bookmarklets is that there is limited choice of RSS readers they provide under the “Subscribe Now!” section. At present you can subscribe by using Google, Pageflakes, My Yahoo!, and Netvibes.

Google Bookmarklets is the best for Google Reader Users

For Google Reader users this bookmarklets is the best for subscribing to feeds coming from Google themselves. Google provides two bookmarklets as an option for simple RSS subscribing. They are:

Subscribe – View the first available feed in Google Reader.
Show all feeds – Lists all feeds and links them to Google Reader.

Apart from these, Google also provide ways to note and share items by using bookmarklets.

Though these features are handy but they are still waiting for their best workaround to make a built-in feature. I think Google should first include RSS button in this new browser that integrates directly with their own RSS Reader.

I love Chrome. It looks sharp, I love how they managed to shrink the size of the top bar. But I’m in dire need of some good RSS support. Now, I don’t see how Google should re-invent the wheel. Why not use something similar as the Firefox-approach? Just put the RSS feed in the bookmark bar, and click it once for a dropdown of all the items. Surely, for a team of crack programmers such as Google’s, this can be done?

I still find myself using Firefox every once in a while if I want to check up on my RSS’es. Google Chrome programmers, add a good -or better- RSS support, and you’ve got me bagged.

I agree with moabi, you just need a simple auto detecting RSS button.

What about a real RSS bookmarking ? This solution cannot be considered as “usable”.

I do too, go to firefox every time I want to get my RSS feeds – on Firefox it’s already perfect – no need to improve or anything, just put on Chrome the exact same feature.

Agree with the above. Copy the feature from Firefox.

I tried using the bookmarklet, but the problem is that the feed is on our intranet and not accessible from outside. This is the reason I need an in-browser feature in the first place.
