Browsers versus Feeds

BrowsersNumerous people argue that Web browsing will be replaced by feeds of information. one can get everything from film reviews, weather, and the news to photo galleries of friends, all in a matter of seconds. Heavy pages with varying design and navigation methods are cumbersome. Consequently, content becomes king.

Here is the word from Robert Scoble, a popular Microsoft evangelist:

…RSS news aggregator. That’s where I spend 90% of my Internet time now anyway. Are you still using a Web browser? Good. I’ve been telling audiences that those of you still using Web browsers are wasting your time…

…Think I’m alone? Audiences at SXSW and Northern Voice have been very heavy RSS users. So much so that at SXSW there was a panel discussing whether or not design mattered anymore…

If you do not know where to start, visit RSSOwl.org where free software is available. You can find links to feeds in extensive directories, or maybe among the local links.
