RSS/Atom Feed View-source Bookmarklet

| Comments

See, this is why I love Twitter. One of my gripes with Firefox is that it automatically assumes any RSS or atom feed I enter into the address bar is one that I want to subscribe to using some sort of feed reader like Google Reader. While this is true 90% of the time, there is that occasional instance where I actually want to see the plain text of the feed. I posed my question to the Twittersphere and merely moments later, somebody replied with just the right solution:

I gave it a shot and it worked perfectly, but the only problem was that it required a few too many keystrokes for my liking. With that in mind, I whipped up a quick bookmarklet to take care of it for me. Here’s the source in, conveniently enough, less than 140 characters.


You can also just drag this View Feed Source link to your bookmarks.

Thanks, @popthestack!
