I did find a VERY cool tool over on KBCafe called OPML Surfer. In short:
If you open an OPML file on the way, say, http://davenet.opml.org/index.opml you'll see it look like:
Ak! What the hell is all that? Don't Panic! Enter KBCafe's OPML Surfer. Copy the URL and go to http://www.kbcafe.com/rss/opmlsurfer.aspx where you can paste in the URL and click 'Surf'. You'll then see the OPML file magically open up below (similar to the way search results open up) and you can click through the links. Awesome!
Now, to take it to another level, I hacked up my Google Search Bookmarklet and changed the code to work with OPML Surfer. It helps stop all that messy copy and pasting. When you have an OPML page open in your browser you just click the 'Surf this OPML' link and a new window will open up containing the OPML in browsable form. Magical!
First, you need to drag this link to your browser's tool bar:
Surf this OPML
Now go to an OPML file like: http://hosting.opml.org/techcrunch.opml.org/techcrunch.opml and then click your new 'Surf this OPML' bookmarklet.

Now that Google has released their new Blog Search tool I'm often curious who is writing about a popular page I may be visiting. I hacked up an old bookmarklet to make it use Google Blog Search. All you have to do is drag the following link to the favorites or bookmark bar in your browser. When you are on a page you want to check and see if anyone has blogged about it, just click the bookmark. Your results will be built in a separate browser window. Drag this link to your toolbar --> Google for Blog Links
