Feedster RSS tutorial for Mac Safari users

Apple’s new operating system Mac OSX Tiger has a RSS reader built into it’s packaged Internet browser, Safari. And Chris Richardson reports at Webpronews that RSS search engine Feedster.com has released an RSS tutorial for Safari browser users, detailing the various methods Mac users can take advantage of RSS and Safari’s capabilities.

Here’s Apple’s spiel on Safari’s RSS:

Safari RSS lets you take news feeds and view them together in a simple, ad-free list, so you can quickly find all the articles that interest you from across the Web. Safari is compatible with all the RSS feeds on the Internet because of its standards-based support for RSS 0.9, RSS 1, RSS 2 and Atom.

When Safari encounters a RSS feed, it displays every headline and article summary right in the browser window. To read the complete article, click on the headline or summary to retrieve the web page. Safari has a slider control for customizing the displayed length of each article summary and controls for sorting and filtering displayed articles by Date, Title and Source.

As Richardson says “Apparently, RSS is here to stay, and its following appears to be getting stronger and stronger.”
