The makers of the RSS reader for IE have extended support to Firefox browsers with its newest release.

Pluck has updated the Internet Explorer Edition of its product, and in a press release also disclosed that a new Firefox edition will be available.

Pluck’s software turns the browser into an RSS aggregator and manager. Until this week, the product had only been available as a web-based service and as a plug-in for IE. The Firefox Edition will work with Firefox 1.0.4 or higher on Mac OS X 10.3.9 and up, and on Windows 2000 or XP.

RSS may be ready to enter the mainstream, as Google recently made RSS and Atom feeds available from its Google News web site. Google could do for RSS what Apple did for podcasting awareness.

The RSS technology gives content providers an efficient way to notify users of updated and new site contents. Personal blogs through Fortune 500 companies offer RSS or Atom feeds from their sites.

If enough people become RSS consumers, the format could become a preferred method of distributing content. But it took years for web browsers to become accepted by casual users, and RSS probably faces the same hurdle.
