What's wrong with the ornage XML thingie we've been using for the last few years...?

Frank Koehntopp, 2005-12-23

Well, Firefox introduced this icon and now MS has jumped on the train.

On the other side, the orange XML-thingy is perhaps a bit too technical. Since feeds have become a usual thing and continue to find their ways to more and more websites and applications, I understand there is a need for an easier symbol to indicate them. Regarding this, I find the 'new' icon serves the purpose better than the technical XML button.

Lots of things are wrong with it. But that is not important.

What is important is that both Firefox and IE 7 will use this icon for RSS feeds. So it makes a lot of sense to do the same on all websites. Maybe even Apple will stop thinking different.

Well there is no existing standard for these icons, therefore I appreciate the cooporation of MS and Mozilla in regards of this icon and I believe that this will cause that this icon will become more or less a standard indication symbol for feeds.
Hmm, anyhow, I always liked the 80x15 buttons since those indicated additional info such as type of feed and so on. But Volker shows how to add additional info, just place text next to the icon, so no problem at all :-)
But what I have thought first when reading this blog entry: Yet another web 2.0 feature ? ;-)

Thanks, very useful link. Just in time for the YaB! thing I'm fiddling around with :-)
