I've used rss for years, and still do.
I've never needed nor wanted browser support to do it, but extensions
do exist, and they do work.
Do you go to 100 news sites every day, or one rss reader?
Do you go to 100 forums every day, or one mail client?
People have been writing obituaries for RSS ever since Google discontinued
Reader. There are plenty
of click-bait stories about it - just do a search. I agree that the fact
that browsers are discontinuing support
is no big deal... the feature within the browsers wasn't used by many
people because you get a much
better experience using a specialized client or website:
Discourse has very good RSS support and I've been testing the feeds for
several weeks now. That feature
works quite well - and keeps you from cluttering your inbox with postings -
while still providing the content
and a simply way to respond.
