It is also used to check feeds and updating web resources. Sharpreader also detects and shows connections between items if they have the same link, or if there's any sort of relation between the two. The Atom format within the Sharpreader was developed as an alternative to RSS, and it is believed that the RSS had limitations and flaws. There's also another type of aggregator called content aggregator, which combines info such as news, sports, scores, local weather, from various sites and makes it easily attainable to its customers. Software developer, Luke Hutteman, wanted to make sure that the internet had a safer transition for people who are used to using Internet Explorer, or any other outdated search engine to enjoy the internet and work safely from home.

Very dull website, It could use a little refresh according to the newer designs. No body use rss feeds now a days, everyone uses mobile podcasts or subscriptions but worked fine with an old rss feed.
