Enhanced RSS Features On Firefox 2.0

By January 30, 2007July 30th, 2023No Comments

The latest release of Mozilla Firefox has some subtle but powerful changes. They include addition of a search term suggestion tool in the built-in search box, easier tab closure, default opening of new links in a new tab rather than a new window, phishing protection, auto session recovery after a crash and improved RSS functionality.

The improvements in the RSS functionality allow users to decide how to handle feeds. Users have the option to subscribe to a few via a Web service or in a standalone RSS reader, or add them as Live Bookmarks. Firefox 2.0 comes pre-loaded with My Yahoo!, Bloglines and Google Reader as Web service options, but users can add any Web service that handles RSS feeds.
