My Gmail Account Has an Atom Feed


I was looking at the page source on GMail a minute ago and saw a link tag that gave a URL for an Atom feed. Sure enough, go to

https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom
and there's XML staring you in the face:

<feed version="0.3">
  <title>Gmail - Inbox for windley</title>
  <tagline>New messages in your Gmail Inbox</tagline>
  <fullcount>1</fullcount>
  <link rel="alternate" 
        href="http://mail.google.com/mail" type="text/html"/>

  <entry>
    <title>testing</title>
    <summary/>
    <link rel="alternate" 
          href="http://mail.google.com/mail" type="text/html"/>

It's apparently been there for quite a while. I just never knew about it.
