Add Any RSS/XML Feed to your Google Custom Homepage

Google Custom Home Page

It seems that Google is slowly opening its arms to RSS and XML. I just noticed a “new content” banner on my custom Google home/portal page. In addition to a new Gmail section, you can now add any RSS/XML feed, and the new items will show up on the front page.

Interesting, given Google’s reluctance to full embrace RSS/XML syndication in their web offerings (with the notable exception of Gmail).
