Get an RSS feed for any web page you visit

I’ve become accustomed to using RSS as an efficient way of keeping up with changes on web sites, but some sites simply don’t offer RSS (for whatever reason). So I was delighted to find Feedity, a free service which claims to be able to create RSS for any web page.

You visit the Feedity site, enter the web address of the site you want to create a feed for and it generates a feed that you can incorporate into an RSS reader. And if you want to, Feedity also provides for a quick and simple way to build a data mashup “pipeline” using Yahoo Pipes.

Overall, it works well – few minor hitches with some web pages but worth trying nonetheless.

However, you obviously shouldn’t use this in a mission critical environment – there are no guarantees re timeliness, uptime or the like.
