RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a core component of Web 2.0 but the vast majority of people still don’t really know what it is or is not able to use it effectively. Particls is an interesting tool that embed RSS making it ‘not visible’ and providing access to the information people want.
I downloaded and tested Particls for couple of days and I have to say that it’s very helpful to filter all the relevant information I need. Applications like this might help to change that majority I mentioned before into a minority.
Particls helps you track your favorite sites and apps by displaying desktop alerts for important changes. The web is just too big. No one has time to keep track of all the sites, conversations and interesting bits and pieces that interest them. We all have real work to do and lives to live! So what if you could subscribe to the sites you like best and be notified when they change. Particls even works out how important the new information is to you and displays a proportional alert.
There’s also a blog on which you can find instructions for running Particls on Mac.
