The old adage about wolves in sheep’s clothes is probably applicable to my new favorite interweb site, start.com/1/. Start.com is essentially a really simple web based rss reader (really simple really simple syndication?) combined with the recently improved MSN search engine. I like the page so much that i’ve made it my homepage, causing me to feel a little dirty every time I load up firefox. I’ve always been a really big fan of RSS, but I’ve never really been able to justify running another application just to check RSS feeds. Things like konfabulator widgets and the firefox ‘live bookmarks’ (or whatever) are ok, but they lack the ‘description’ contents. Unlike most other web-based RSS readers, start.com is completely cookie based, no login required. blah, blah, blah, i love microsoft, send me to hell.
