Continuing my journey with RSS and Internet Explorer – here comes another article that is of most importance when it comes to Subscribing to a feed in Internet Explorer. All the working professionals are going to find this article extremely using for them because they are more likely to face the situation given in this article.
In my few earlier posts you may have noticed regarding a lot of tutorials that relate to using RSS in Internet Explorer. In this tutorial I will tell you how you can access password protected RSS feeds in IE 8. Lets start with the tutorial:
If you are a web developer – creating a complete source code of RSS feeds is like a piece of Cake for you. But when it comes to dynamic generation of RSS or ATOM feeds you cannot do much instead of either using or creating an automatic script that will do the job for you.
Web feeds are basically available in 2 formats – RSS and atom. Both these formats have their own advantages and disadvantage. Where RSS is really a simple technology and useful for all sort of people, atom is much more advanced and can contain more data and information of a feed. You use any of these and they will work for you.
RSS is a technology that works on XML. All the web feed related technologies like ATOM are completely based on XML. Basically XML is a data transport format that is used to transmit the data from one place to another. The web page that you see with your RSS feeds through Feed Burner will actually differ if you use any other service. This is because of Custom styling used in the RSS feeds by different websites. But lets not go deep in technology and lets learn how to view the XML source code of RSS Feeds in Feedburner.
After a quick login into Google after my last blog post, I found that Instant Search was enabled in Google. I really don’t like the Instant Search feature of Google and want the search results to appear in the legacy way. Although I really like the Ajax Search of Google but Instant Search Results for me is a big Turn Off.
Creative Commons is a Non Profit Organization that is responsible for creating licences for Online Content.

RSS feeds contain the latest update from your blog. They are used by readers in order to subscribe to your blog to get the latest news from it. RSS is build upon XML and is one of the best technologies in the world of Internet today. And undoubtedly RSS and XML and other variants of XML are and will definitely rule the web in future.
Before I start this entire tutorial – I would like to explain to everybody what exactly I am talking about. What exactly you mean by RSS feed password authentication and why is it useful.
Internet explorer RSS feed reader or aggregator is a tool that is so much hidden in the interface that finding it is not an easy task. In my last post I told you how to do that. In this post I will extend the discussion further by expanding the topic of IE RSS subscription process. Let us see how to unsubscribe to a feed in IE:
In the last post I discussed about a feature in Internet Explorer that can help you in subscribing to a RSS feed. But right where I ended that post, the problem began. You won’t believe it took me nearly 2 hours to find where those RSS feeds were actually stored. And at the end what I found was nearly next to null. I was completely shocked by the integration of the RSS feed reader in IE.
Internet Explorer 8 has a built in RSS Feed Subscriber Application. With this application anyone can just subscribe to any feed on the web without using the External Desktop Client or without using any other Web Based Feed Aggregator. This is a very simple to use tool but still it is hidden from many eyes. In this tutorial I will tell you how to subscribe to a RSS feed in IE 8.
Internet Explorer is now shipped with a feature that allows you to open the last browsing session. Suppose you visited many websites in the previous hour and suddenly because of the power failure all the important windows and tabs that were opened in Internet Explorer that you were about to bookmark for future use are now no more available. Now how are you going to recover or restore those tabs. This is the scenario in which this tutorial will help you.
I don’t know why the Tabbed browsing functionality was not inbuilt into Internet Explorer during its initial versions. Tabbed browsing actually enhances the complete way of how people browse the Internet. After this feature has been embedded into IE, still I find it very distant from its neighbours like Mozilla FireFox or Google Chrome. For example reopening closed tabs is still something that people are confused how to do so. I think in upcoming versions of IE – this issue will be sorted up.
Popup blocker is a utility that is embedded in all web browsers today. With popup blocker utility one can block a popup window from opening unnecessarily. But there are certain times when opening pop-up window while browsing the web becomes a mandate. Let us see this in detail:
Popup Blocker is a feature of all Major Web Browsers. Whether you are using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or any one else, you will definitely find a utility called Pop-up Blocker. This is not all, even some major Tool bars like the Google Toolbar also include this feature.
Sometimes when working in your office or at clients place you will notice that you are unable to manage addons in IE. Neither you are able to enable them nor your are able to disable them. Even you are also unable to install new addons. Lets see what this entire problem is all about.
