Recently launched RSS Mixer wants to make mixing and mashing up all of your RSS feeds as easy as possible. They’ve spent the last year devloping a service that they hope will allow even the least technically savvy user be able to create their own mashups without the complexity of Drupal, Microsoft Popfly or even Yahoo Pipes.

After experimenting with RSSMixer and creating several new mashups in a matter of minutes the verdict is that they have accomplished their goal. It is extremely easy to mix and mashup many RSS Feeds in no time at all. The interface is well-designed and helps make the process very simple.

If You Build it they will come
Not only is it easy to create as many mixes as you want, you can also share the RSS feed that’s created for every mix that you create. People can subscribe to your mixes just as they do for other sites in their RSS reader of choice.

Getting Jiggy Widget
There’s also a widget feature that will allow anyone to add you mix as a gadget or widget. The four most popular types are supported: Apple Dashboard widgets, Yahoo Widgets, Vista Widgets and Google Gadgets.

Rince, Lather and Repeat!
One of the nice things about RSSMixer is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. If you see a mix that someone else has created that you like then you can actually add that mix to one of your mixes and change it up to make it your own. Within every mix you can see which RSS feeds were used by its creator.

Add-on tools
There’s a Firefox add-on tool for your toolbar that will make it easy to add any RSS feed you want to your RSSMixer account. You can also import all of your RSS feeds from your RSS reader of choice by using the OPML format.

If you don’t have the time or interest to learn how to use some of the more complex mashup services like Yahoo Pipes or Microsoft Popfly then RSSMixer is a no-brainer. Just copy and paste RSS Feeds and you’ll create new mixes on a single webpage with all of the information that you want to track or share with others.
