    Your a moron, they've doing something good by teaming up with Mozilla and creating a standard.

    When calling someone a moron, may I suggest you use the correct spelling of words (You are = you're) and construct a proper sentence?

    I can't believe this.

    So 4% of people are using RSS. What's the OS X market share again? :p

    Ok ok, I use RSS, but changing the icon isn't going to encourage more people to use it. I'm flabergasted!

    A standard is a good thing. This orange icon is not a good icon.

    There is absolutely no way this icon is going to aid the understanding of RSS. It looks much more like a wireless icon than anything else.

    I don't use RSS. Sure, Macbytes has a RSS feed, but I'm happy just reading macbytes. I don't really have a use for it.

    I dig podcasts, though, so in that sense, I do, but as stated, a different icon won't swing my vote.

    I haven't found one that's exclusively for MacBytes.

    "Meaningful" feeds have been very useful and time-saving for me but others aren't worthwhile when compared to just visiting the main site. And I use quite a few as a monitoring/notification service that new content is available on sites, especially infrequently updated ones, then possibly ignore the feed data and just visit the sites directly. It may take awhile to decide whether or not particular feeds are of any value. And feeds have helped me prioritize attention on certain sites, some that I'll eventually end up only rarely or never visiting.

    I originally doubted the value of feeds but since becoming dependent on them certain web activity would seem severely crippled for me without them.

    Yeah, the icon sure doesn't float my boat as a standard.

    How does either icon aid the understanding of it? For a standard called RSS, a blue rectangle with the letters "RSS" inside doesn't aid understanding at all, and neither does an orange square with a small series of curves.
