    Under MacOS X v10.4.x, feed: links always launch the default RSS reader. The default RSS reader can be set via Safari's "RSS" preferences. I'm not sure how to set the default reader on a Windows box though.

    it is still not an official protocol!!! no RFC or whatever is required to make it an official protocol :)

    Maybe not but it makes sense to begin using it anyway. Simple enough to remove if you don't want it (which is what I did).

    I still remember the times when http: wasn't an "official protocol".
