    What is the option to "Add Website to Shared Links?" I am not clear on what this is for and there does not seem to be an option to remove it.

    Thanks

    It adds it to your web site subscriptions list to track posts to the site. I just use that to add MacRumors. You can see it by clicking the reveal sidebar button in the toolbar. Then click the @ button, then at the very bottom of that column click "show subscriptions"" and you will see it like in my screenshot. You can click the x beside the entry to remove it.

    Is the idea of this feature to enable you to view feeds in Safari in the same way that you might use Feedly to subscribe to different blogs OR is it meant for more limited uses? OR it meant to subscribe to individual forum posts?

    Thanks.

    Yes... sort of like a built in RSS reader like Feedly.

    Is this a good way to subscribe to forum posts like this one? Does it notify you if new replies are made?

    It would if this site had RSS feeds for individual threads, but I'm not seeing that, so I don't think it would work.
