Opera Sings for RSS

Alright, so my first post to the SEO Blog isn’t so much Search Engine-related, but it does offer a great heads up 🙂

For those of you looking for a great way to follow RSS feeds (like ours), yesterday, Opera, a long time player in the web-browser market, announced that it’s going FREE and it includes a seriously cool method to read newsfeeds (like ours).

Traditionally, the browser has been “adware” — meaning users who chose to use the software had to put up with integrated (though unobstrusive) advertising in the corners of the screen.

From the Opera web site:

The most full-featured Internet power tool on the market, Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like Opera’s groundbreaking E-mail program, RSS Newsfeeds and IRC chat. And because we know that our users have different needs, you can customize the look and content of your Opera browser with a few clicks of the mouse.

Personally, I’ve always loved Opera, so I was excited to see their new (free)direction and I think their take on the RSS reader is awesome and may just end up replacing my current newsreader(OS X only) (Link removed – no longer available).

For those not in-the-know, here’s a little background information on “web syndication” and how it’s supposed to work.
