Firefox Extension: Tab Groups

xFruits – the Swiss Army knife for RSS feeds

xFruits is an excellent, free, web application that allows you to do lots and lots of things with RSS feeds.


For example, I’ve just created a constantly-updating PDF of my starred and shared items from my Google Reader account. This is great if you’re trying to convert people to use RSS feeds, or you just want to share things via paper. A really good use would be to convert a collaborative RSS feed to PDF.

There’s also options to convert an RSS feed to many more things such as:

  • Many RSS feeds into one
  • RSS to Web
  • RSS to Mobile
  • RSS to Mail
  • RSS to OPML

I can see definite advantages in using this – weekly newsletters, automatically updating websites, etc. Fantastic!
