Twitter and RSS are popular sources for examining the flow of news through the internet pipeline. But there are other ways to get your goods. I have discussed Lazyfeed, the real-time blog aggregator / updater, here in the Studio. Now another tool has emerged to help you stay on top of breaking news and site changes.
Readfresh is a web site that collects your favorite web pages, and brings the most recently updated sites to the top of the screen, so you can see what’s new at a glance.After signing up (you can use Facebook Connect) and entering your favorite web site URLs, just sit back and watch the sites shift and flow as new information is added to them.
You also can search for content via Readfresh. Use the Search tab to search the latest updates across all sites in the Readfresh index.
It has a nice, simple interface, which is both a benefit and a drawback. Consider using Readfresh if you only have a handful of sites to follow. For power readers, the interface may not capture enough of the breaking information for your tastes. Nonetheless, if you are new to following changing web content, Readfresh might be a good starting point.
