IE, Firefox agree on feed icon

rss If you are reading this on FireFox, you must have noticed an orange icon at right end of URL address field.

By clicking on it, you will be asked to add “live bookmark”. After adding my site, you can read my blog feed anytime from that bookmark without visiting my site. 

Why am I talking this? Coz …

Microsoft’s IE7 RSS team just decided to adopt that orange icon used in Firefox. They made several icons already. After all, they wanted to make some kind of standard for this feed icon. So, they paid a visit to FF team to ask for permission. and FF team happily allowed them to use it. I’m glad they made right decision. Applause for both of the teams for good cooperation.
