Well no, far from it, but there has been an interesting post on this and other discussions from the browser makers themselves.  Namely Firefox has removed the RSS feed from the toolbar in 4.0.  This has sparked much conversation to bring that back.

The main reason for this is that it simply is not used, therefore having it so prominent is unnecessary.  Furthermore all sites already provide this capability on their pages, so why include one on the browser too?  There are some interesting counters to this and I suggest you have a read.

This got me thinking as well, since the code review product in Klocwork Insight Pro already has that RSS feed icon.  So all is good right?  Well the post also brings up the fact that most don’t know what this symbol means.  Do you know?  If you do know, do you use it?

    RSS isn’t dead… just yet. Other mediums are taking the place of RSS. We still love RSS because it’s one medium to get our news.
