Exploring iGoogle and pictures
By Dave Winer on Friday, April 23, 2010 at 2:53 AM.

A picture named huey.gifGot an email from Don Loeb this morning with news that iGoogle now supports pictures in RSS feeds. So I thought I should check it out. permalink

I wanted to add a photo feed. Went looking for a way to just enter the address of the feed, but instead found a page where I could create a gadget from a feed.  permalink

Add to Google permalink

I tried clicking on it. permalink

It worked but it didn't do anything special with the pictures.  permalink

Changed the presentation style to Slideshow, with a very nice result. permalink

BTW, here's an iGoogle button for Scripting News. permalink

Add to Google permalink

Nice! <img src="> permalink

PS: It would be great if Google supported Realtime RSS. I updated my feed 45 minutes ago but the change still hasn't been reflected in iGoogle. (I know, they want me to support their proprietary way of doing notification, I want them to do it the open way. You'll know that Google has become a serious competitor when they take advantage of every open format and protocol in the interest of making their product work better.) permalink
