Hi! This is Mike Callahan, Dr. File Finder and welcome back to our special butterscotch.com 10 part series on Safari.
In this segment, we’re going to look briefly at RSS feeds in Safari. Safari is the first browser to have a built in RSS reader and it's a great way to keep up with all of your newsfeeds. There’s complete RSS aggregation, you can search for your RSS feeds, you can bookmark RSS feeds and that’s a very cool feature. So, here on butterscotch.com, I'm going to click on the RSS feeds link up here and let's say newest episodes. So, we’ll click on that. Now, Safari opens it up here and what we’re going to do is we’re going to click on this plus right here at the beginning of the address bar. And we get a box come up where we can type in a name and let's say that we like to go into the bookmarks bar. So, we’ll add it and you can see right up here it's added.
Now, we can go to another one, we’ll go to the New York Times and click right here. We can get to click plus New York Times homepage. Again, we’ll have to go to the bookmarks bar. You could also have it go to a news area or to your bookmarks menu but I'm going to keep them here in my bookmarks bar where I can reach them easily, click Add and now that one is added there as well. So now, if I want to read that, I can just click there. There is the latest butterscotch episodes, here’s the latest wired top stories. I can also click here and say show all bookmarks.
