Awhile back, I noted that I thought RSS feeds would really start to appeal to a general audience once the major Web browsers started including built-in feed readers. Well, that wasn’t happening because Microsoft really isn’t doing much with Internet Explorer these days, and AOL and the other major browsers appear likewise to be dragging their feet on this issue.
Then along comes Pluck, a new feed reader that’s a plugin for Internet Explorer. I’ve just tried it out, and it’s pretty good. The interface in some ways resembles my current favorite reader, Feed Demon. Pluck is free and easy to install, and fairly easy to use (Take the “product tour” after you install it, if you’re unfamiliar with using a feed reader.)
SIDE NOTE: I’ve been very, very busy the last couple of days and probably won’t be able to catch up on my blogging until tonight
