The first web-based RSS feed reader
By Dave Winer on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at 11:57 AM.

Over on Google-Plus, Tantek Celik asks if Bloglines was the first web-based RSS feed reader. #

The first was my.netscape.com, which according to Scripting News, was first available on February 11, 1999. #

We launched our competitor, my.userland.com, on March 27, 1999.  #

Archive.org has a snapshot UserLand's site from 1999, but seems to have lost their archive of my.netscape.com. #

Netscape took the approach more like the one My.Yahoo, Bloglines and Google Reader took. #

Our reader took the approach eventually adopted by Twitter and Facebook. #
