One page to rule them all

Recommended Posts

Ok I don't know if this has been done before, but I was thinking about having a website where a user can sign up. It would have real simple options like backgrounds etc. But what you would do is enter a website that you go to everyday. Then it would scan the site and looks for any RSS feed etc. If it had multiples then you could pick the one you wanted and basically it would create a custom homepage based off your feeds. So no point visiting any of the other websites.

so, kinda like iGoogle, or any of the similar things out there.  The difference here being not just a collection of your RSS feed headlines, but potentially the feed's text as well, or at least rather than linking to the actual site it would just link to another page that displayed the article

Exactly just an extractor that extracts the feeds, plus maybe a widget like interface where you can make the layout the way you want it. free movement and maybe a resize feature. You would basically be in a sandbox, with simple options like a twitter backgrounds and just an avatar. You could just log in each time and it would keep your page the way you left it and RSS feeds. You could also be social with it by sharing page layouts etc. Now someone just needs to program it using either Ajax or Ruby on Rails. Plus a database.
