Caution with using IE7 as a newsreader

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

The good news is that IE7, just released, can now read RSS newsfeeds.  The bad news is that it does not use the original format, stripping out the look and feel, but more importantly not providing all the info available in a more functional newsreader.  So, the links you see at the right-hand side of this page do not appear in IE7. 

So, I suggest you continue to use (or start to use) a fully-functional feedreader, such as RssReader, which I use.

    If you aren’t into running a separate newsreader, there’s always the Thunderbird option. I’ve been using Tbird for my email for a while now, along with its built-in RSS and newsgroup capabilities. It’s a capable and extensible bit of software.

    Good option, Bill.
