Check RSS/ATOM reader IP address

08 Apr 2013

Since I got the news that Google Reader was closing I have moved to RSSOwl for my RSS/ATOM feed needs.

Get RSSOwl

It feels really good to reclaim my data from google, but one feature I am missing is the anonymization that the google crawler provided. To reclaim some of this I am running the RSS reader over Tor (I am getting possible DNS leakage warnings from Vidalia. Have not had time to verify this yet though).
To verify that the Tor Proxy is used I created a small ATOM feeds which tells you what IP address you are accessing it from.

Feel free to use it if you like
