RSS Viewer app
Dave Winer, Scripting News, June 22, 2013

So I'm reading dave Winer and he writes, "I got tired of fighting with Chrome and Safari over whether I'm allowed to read RSS files" and he offers a single-function web page to make this possible. And then I'm thinking - wait, what? Chrome and Safari are making it difficult to view RSS files? I use Firefox, so I hadn't noticed this. But how typical is it that these browsers - made by Google and Apple respectively - are set up against RSS. More and more, the open web is a threat to these companies, not an asset.
