Icona RSS: Internet Explorer copia Firefox

Il Team RSS di Microsoft ha annunciato l’utilizzo dell’icona RSS di Firefox nella prossima versione del browser Internet Explorer.

Queste le parole di Microsoft:

"I’m excited to announce that we’re adopting the icon used in Firefox. John and Chris were very enthusiastic about allowing us (and anyone in the community) to use their icon. This isn’t the first time that we’ve worked with the Mozilla team to exchange ideas and  encourage consistency between browsers, and we’re sure it won’t be the last.

We’ll be using the icon in the IE7 command bar whenever a page has a feed associated with it, and we’ll also use it in other places in the browser whenever we need a visual to represent RSS and feeds. Look for more details on the look and feel of IE7 when we post the public pre-release build  next year."

La scelta di Microsoft permette a chi passa da IE a Firefox e viceversa una maggiore chiarezza nell’uso del RSS Feed, sempre più importanti ed utilizzati in futuro.

Ciononostante, la cosa più importante è il dialogo tra Microsoft e Mozilla, che potrebbe dare il là ad eventuali future collaborazioni.
