IE7 to Support RSS

Just today Microsoft announced that they would be including extended support for RSS in Windows Longhorn, the next version of Windows due next year. Not only will Microsoft be adding an RSS reader to Internet Explorer, but they'll make it easier for software developers to easily integrate RSS into their applications.

Currently all major web browsers contain a method for reading RSS. Opera and Firefox have both had RSS support for as long as most of us can remember. Safari recently received a stylish RSS reader in the latest version, included in Mac OS X Tiger. Now a-days RSS is so popular that it is hard to produce a product without it.

Microsoft is also talking about adding support for ordered list in RSS feeds too. This will make a much needed improvement to RSS. With RSS support going from the "techies" to the public, webmasters will have a reliable option of delivering content to their readers.
