number of RSS feed burners or readers, such
as Google Reader, iGoogle, Pageflakes,
Netvibes and more. These tools, once you've

its feeds page. For example, you can create
a "politics" tab, a "to do" tab, a "news" tab,
and so on. iGoogle also makes suggestions for
feeds from its widgets, including clocks,
maps and games.
RSS is a fantastic way to organize and
