ATOM/RSS reader as a web app with support for 3rd party apps over REST API.
It can be used to subscribe to online feeds (ATOM/RSS) and to browse those feeds.
The service will spawns some bots to crawle those feeds for you in the background.
It also has HTTP(S)-based REST API you can use to write 3rd party apps and integrations.
We have tested the app on Google Chrome and Apple Safari but it should work on any web browser.
Client side libraries:

Most modern web browsers don't make it easy to use RSS/atom feeds without 3rd party addons -- our API is intended to make it easy to write those addons -- a lot like like IMAP works for email, actually.
Another reason is that when you subscribe to a feed that's already in the system (by another user), you get full history right away from our cache. Sadly we didn't get time to implement full text search in the API.
