  • You can set apache to return a content type of application/rss+xml for any document (despite the more appropriate text/rss+xml … as it is text after all).

    Though, it all depends on your browser + operating system combination, if the browser doesn’t think anything different of the content-type and decides to display it, it’s hard to just pass it off to an application.

    Mozilla/Firefox/et al might need a plugin to do this. And then your operating system would need a default rss-feed reader registered somewhere.

    I just don’t see the point. Why not copy the address and paste it into your feed reader? Hell, some even allow drag + drop. The problem is that this ‘draft’ requires a lot of work that really isn’t needed, especially when people don’t have any problems doing it manually now.

    Although it may be obvious what to do with RSS URLs to most geeks, the majority of the Web users are scratching their heads wondering what all these angled brackets are for.
