Click the icon for an explanation of RSS feeds
The icon was introduced in Mozilla Firefox to
indicate the presence of an RSS feed. Microsoft has also adopted it in order to promote a defacto standard.
|"..... do not underestimate the impact of millions of desktops
worldwide getting not only a new browser (IE 7), but a magical little orange
button. Not everyone will click on it, but those who are curious will,
and then the fun starts. As more people around the world start reading
RSS feeds, big things will happen. It will force everyone to begin
integrating feed communication initiatives into their marketing and PR
programs. News and blog posts are just the beginning. Couponing and
all kinds of other communiques will go into feeds, as well as ads and
more. That little orange button might look small, but boy is it
big." Steve Rubel|

Update 01/01/2020. The author, Dave Cross notes "... outside of a tiny tech bubble, RSS
never really took off in the way it should have done and for a few
years now people have been proclaiming that
RSS is dead. So Iíve decided to remove the page."
