Feed Handling

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The feed handling capabilities of Firefox 1.x are limited to locating feeds advertised by sites in <link> tags and offering to add them as "Live Bookmarks". This is useful to some but not all, as there are many other specialized RSS aggregators, client applications and web services. These are not served by this UI. Also, clicking on links to feeds on web pages usually results in garbage (raw, unstyled XML) being displayed.


Make it easy to subscribe to sites so that users can receive updates to them in their favorite reader. Ensure that clicking on links to feeds shows something meaningful.
