Chris Pirillo’s

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Chris Pirillo letting me know about a new metasearch service he devised called I wasn’t able to try it out because I was recuperating from surgery at the time, but today I took it for a test spin and I was immediately won over by its OPML support.

Why? Well, instead of subscribing to a dozen individual search feeds, I can import a single OPML file which links to them all. For example, the OPML below links to 16 different search feeds for the keyword FeedDemon:

I’m not a big user of mobile devices (call me a Luddite, but when I’m away from I desk I want to forget all about technology), but if I was I’d also love how simplifies keyboard entry of queries from cell phones and other handheld gadgets.

For details, check out Chris’s blog for his announcement of’s public beta.

  1. The server is getting slammed. I can’t connect at all. Sounds like good stuff, though and it addresses a particular feature request that didn’t make the cut. ;)
    I’m feeling a new FD Search definition coming on.

  2. I’m guessing here, (Nick would have to confirm) but we’re so close to the release of 1.6 that it wouldn’t make the cut.
    I do like the idea though. I’ve got a few extensions to this that I’ll share with Nick if we get some time to talk about it.
    Do I take this to mean that there’s no plans to implement RSS output from at this time?
