I think most of you might had heard about feeds and live bookmarks.For those who don't know , feeds help us in reading blogs and web pages without opening them by displaying the content in the text format by auto refreshing themselves.You need not open the web page every time to check the latest updates.Instead you just have to check your feed.Multiple pages can be checked using a feed reader like Google feedreader.
