Why have the browsers failed here? None of them responds in the same way when a user clicks an rss feed.
Why cant it be as easy as my browser recognising that i've clicked rss and asking me "i've noticed that youre opening a rss file / feed / channel, what do you want to do with it" and giving me a choice of my installed feed reading capable applications, fireant, feedreader, itunes, etc.? Instead this had to become the middle-mans problem and now there are gazillion solutions, feedburners, buttons and what have you. Only those who already know feeds, podcasting etc have a clue what those 10 buttons on a site do, so it doesn't really ease the barrier to entry. Sorry for going on a rant. Cheers to Fireant, the new directory and its development team who are really there for their users. -A p.s. actually the PSP browser gets it right, it notices that i have clicked a "channel" and asks me if i want to subscribe to it.
