    I can't tell you how cool it is to check out your Halo 2 stats fron Bungie.net with Safari RSS now. You used to have to use their frontend, but now you can just click the RSS button and get something that looks nice & pretty like this:

    It's RSS, not RRS & it's basically an easy way to look at information from websites without having to suffer from various layouts from site to site.
    There's more information below & the stats above are tracked gamesites from Halo 2 for XBOX tracked by Bungie.net, the makers of Halo 2.

    "RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

    RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them."

    It looks a lot cleaner than Bungie's site, but all the figures are misaligned. :(
