A while back I mentioned the RSS Preview Blum, a bookmarklet that will discover if the webpage you are on has a feed, and be able to subscribe to it directly into your RSS Reader, it also allows you to graze the latest posts - a good way to check it out before you commit to subscribing.
Well, now you can get this as a FireFox add-on.
Further to this, John Forsythe has put one on his blog as a button, now anyone who visits his website can click this button, graze contents, subscribe to the feed, even check out some microformats…very nifty. Can’t wait to get my own.
This is something Grazr could add to their feature list, I can put a Grazr button on my blog that lists my latest posts, but it lacks the feature to easy subscribe to this feed in your favourite RSS Reader.
Plus the RSS Preview Blum isn’t a pop-up box, instead it’s a groovy ajax overlay box.
At the moment (the FF add-on version) will display an RSS label on any corner of your window if the page you are on has a feed, just like Live Bookmarks does in the address bar.
One thing that it’s missing is discovering OPML’s…I’d like it to display an OPML label when it discovers one and to be able to graze the OPML.
Something similar; what about having the OPML icon appear in the FireFox address bar, just like the RSS icon (live bookmarks), this way you can add an OPML to your live bookmarks, a bit like the idea of taskable.
Grazr Preview (Shift-click) enables you to click on the bookmarklet, then click any link on a page, it will discover feeds and OPML’s in order to graze…very impressive that I can now graze the latest posts of a blogs from a link in one of my RSS items in my RSS Reader.
OPMLify Page Links is a bit different, it scrapes all links on a given webpage and wrap thems in an OPML.
