November 18, 2023 offers IM alerts for new RSS content

I thought this was pretty cool. But I was expecting Microsoft to be the first to introduce this feature. gives you a bookmarklet which you click on when the website you want has a auto-discoverable RSS feed (or click on the bookmarklet when you are on the actual feed url). But I find it inconvenient that doesn’t save my IM settings so I have to re-enter them every time I want to bookmark a new feed for IM alerts. helps you to keep track of online information as it changes. It sends you an instant message whenever any RSS or Atom feed you want to monitor changes. works with all major IM carriers including MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, Jabber, and AIM/ICQ.

    Hi. Thanks very much for the link and the comments. Actually, is supposed to remember who you are when you first create you account… It seems to be doing that for us, or at least it does when cookies are enabled. I’ll look into it.
