Quick RSS Feed Access with Browser Bar Icon

This entry was posted Monday, 7 January, 2013 at 9:49 am by Mario Lurig

Back in early versions of Firefox, a small icon was visible on the browser bar if the webpage you visited listed available RSS feeds in the source HTML:
firefox-rss-icon

Some time in the last few years, this has disappeared. Luckily, with the assistance of extension and add-on developers, this option is available for both Firefox and Chrome!

After installing either browser plugin, an icon will appear if the webpage includes HTML like the following:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Mario Lurig RSS" href="http://mariolurig.com/feed/"/>

You can test it out by visiting this website after installing the extension/add-on.
