What is the different between the different feeds that Bloglines offer when you subscribe to a blog?
I have noticed that when I subscribe to a blog with Bloglines, it takes me to a list of different "feeds" to choose which one to subscribe to. They have different names: atom, rss2, feedburner.
Which difference would it make to subscribe to one or another?

There are technical differences with each format, but nothing that will effect your normal reading of the feeds. So choose whichever, as long as Bloglines can read it it doesn't matter. Some are saying the different formats are pointlessly confusing at the moment, and that everybody should just pick one format and stick with it.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_%28standard%29#A... http://nick.typepad.com/blog/2006/05/pick_a_format...
