What happened to RSS/Live bookmarks/aTom feeds?

    They were all the go during the "Web 2.0" heyday but started to fade into obscurity in the mid-2010s. I did a bit of poking around and found the features to support them were removed from most browsers for a few years already. Back in the day I could check a whole bunch of news sites and blogs without having to open the front page of a single one of them. A great timesaver particularly if you are prone to doomscrolling as many people are these days.

    There are browser addons to restore support but they're not widely used.

    Have attached a screenshot for those who haven't ever seen it / don't know what I'm blathering on about.
