If you use the Firefox browser, check out Live Bookmarks. I’ve tried configuring and using RSS aggregators before, but it seems to be more trouble than its worth, but Firefox makes it as simple as adding an entry to your collection of bookmarks. I just look for the little icon in the lower right, and I can add topical indexes from all my favorite blogs, and then tell at a glance if they’ve been updated. I can’t explain the technique much better than Firefox does on their instruction page, so follow the link and give it a try. You can “Live Bookmark” this blog right now.
