Ajax News

Below I’ve collected some of my favorite RSS news feeds. Click one and news will be summoned by the magic of jQuery’s ajax method.

Keys 1-8 toggle the news feeds, and keys a-j open links to articles in each feed.

I added the shortcuts using the jQuery Hotkeys plugin. For best results, set your browser to open new windows as background tabs. (How? Firefox instructions here and here. You may also need to disable your popup blocker for this website.)
