Just had a cool idea… What if could read sitemaps? They have URLs and last modified dates, so all I'd need to fetch separately would be the titles.

This would mean you could subscribe to pretty much every site on the internet, even if it doesn't have an RSS feed 🤯

@booligoosh that assumes a website has one and regularly updates it though. Its not required by any means and really only sites that are concerned about SEO would.

@splatt9990 True, I'd say the proportion would be a lot higher compared to the number of sites with an RSS feed though (as it directly helps people show up in search engines)
