RSS-Search Adds New Features

Dave Aiello wrote, "Earlier today, Francois Schiettecatte wrote to update me on rss-search.com, and I thought I'd pass the information on to our readers:"

Just wanted to let you know that I have made some changes to RSS Search. You can now download an RSS file for the results as well as subscribe to a news feed if you are using Radio Userland. You had specifically mentioned that in your article {referring to Head-to-Head Comparison Between rssSearch and Feedster, published March 20}.

I also added the ability to set searching preferences, so these are retained
across sessions.

Dave Aiello continued, "Francois is referring to the Search Preferences page on RSS-Search, not the controls that appear on the main page of the site itself. It took me a little while to figure out what he meant."

"Preference setting is definitely a useful feature if, for example, you want to see more search results per page. I think Google offers similar preference setting capabilities for its search engine. It's nice to see that the RSS search tools are reaching this level of maturity so quickly."
