SearchFox Releases Personalized RSS Reader

SearchFox has released an RSS reader that aggregates and personalizes web feeds. SearchFox RSS is a private early beta release, open only to current SearchFox Beta users, friends, and family.

The web is moving away from a search-centered model to one where individuals subscribe to the information they want to read. SearchFox uses machine learning technology to automatically rank and personalize incoming feeds to reflect each reader’s unique interests. Our RSS reader learns by watching what individuals and the entire community find interesting, taking into account various inputs such as the source, author, and topic of an RSS entry. Existing RSS readers only show information chronologically, which quickly leads to information overload. SearchFox makes RSS easier and immediately useful, so everyone can be part of the new web experience.
