I am doing a little debugging and want to read the pure and simple rss xml response in Chrome and do not want Google Reader to be can this be done?


P.S I don't use Google Reader so don't mind if it's permanently disabled.

I would love to have it the other way round. Now I see the XML in the browser, but I'd like to add the RSS to my reader. – Marco Aug 6 '12 at 15:31
@Marco As in you would like non rss xml to be rendered within Google reader? If you want rss rendered in a reader, try installing Google Reader – James Aug 6 '12 at 16:13
@James Have you tried viewing the RSS source via Ctrl + U? – user137430 Aug 7 '12 at 1:12
+1 this terrible, terrible change in chrome is making my development much, much harder – KallDrexx Aug 7 '12 at 12:58
@BryanDunsmore Yes I have, weirdly Chrome just refuses to show the source, just a blank page. – James Aug 7 '12 at 14:07

A recent article at digital inspiration explains how to solve your problem: Prevent Google Chrome from Hijacking RSS Feeds.
