One of the guys from work has just pointed out the Livemark feature of Firefox, which allows you to create dynamic bookmarks based on XML feeds.
- Open the Bookmarks Manager dialog (Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks…).
- Create a new livemark (File > New Livemark…).
- Fill in the properties dialog with appropriate values and click OK. Try these:
Name: “AskTom – Recently Updated”
Feed Location: “http://asktom.oracle.com/pls/ask/ask_tom.newest.rss”
Description: “Most recently updated posts on asktom.oracle.com.”
The resulting bookmark is dynamically generated from the contents of the feed.
I think it’s neat, but now I have to decide between Bloglines, Thunderbird and Firefox as my blog reader 😉
By the way, the blogger spellcheck tries to substitue the word “Asthma” for “AskTom” 🙂
