RSS Market Share

The Blog Blog* Wow! Bloglines is completely dominating the RSS reader market with 32.86% of RSS readership, almost two times their nearest competitor NetNewsWire.

Two questions.

1. When will the folks at Microsoft integrate a free bloglines account into MCE? Microsoft should pursue this themselves rather than wait for bloglines to develop it and come to them.

and

2. When will bloglines offer the ability for me to download my feeds for limited consumption when I am offline?

    We’re a platform company so your question really should be, ‘When will the folks at Bloglines integrate a free bloglines account into MCE?’. Have you asked Bloglines to develop an MCE version?

  2. Thomas Hawk says:

    Good point on asking bloglines to participate in MCE and I did just that today.

    I still think, however, that Microsoft should strongly encourage and reach out to bloglines as well.

    I would imagine being at a rapidly growing small company that is the market leader in it’s field, bloglines might not even be aware of the MCE opportunity.

  3. Bloglines did announce web services which could be used by a plugin developer to link the two.
