If you automatically want to show the feed xml instead of the feed content in IE, when viewing a RSS feed.

Disable the “Turn on feed reading view” setting.

Tools > Internet Options > Content > Settings > uncheck “Turn on feed reading view”

(after changing the setting, I had to restart IE)


For developing ODATA services, this can be handy.




Showing the feed: https://www.roelvanlisdonk.nl/?feed=rss2 will result in:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/" xmlns:wfw="http://wellformedweb.org/CommentAPI/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:sy="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/syndication/" xmlns:slash="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/">



<atom:link href="https://www.roelvanlisdonk.nl/?feed=rss2" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />
