Contrary to what you might think, a reader isn’t someone hired to read you a bedtime story. This isn’t the nursery, after all, it’s the internet. In this virtual universe, a reader is a website that reads the RSS feeds you’ve signed up to, or rather shows you a page with the RSS feeds on your chosen websites and blogs. Readers are also known as “feed aggregators”. Every search engine like Safari, Yahoo or Google. has its reader: Google Reader is one of the most popular, along with Netvibes.
