    Hey guys,

    Have you considered putting in RSS feeds into the site? I've set up a news aggregator and it would be useful to see the news headline titles and link to the site when I see an article I like.

    Cheers

    I'm sure its a quality add on :)

    However, from the name I assume its for Mozilla. I don't use Mozilla.

    Plus RSS is a good XML standard (a w3 standard at that :), so it would be good to see the headlines in a single app (like an RSS aggregator).

    To the website developers, I'd be happy to get you info on the RSS schema (or even code it for you if you couldn't be bothered :D )

    The "add on" that NetRyder mentioned is simply a parser that I wrote (with help from madmatt) which can be displayed in the Mozilla SideBar, which is basically a simple frame that can be displayed at all times.
    All it does is parse the above feeds and display them.

    Sidebar tabs work with Netscape 6/7 and Mozilla

    Netscape is dead. SideBars can also be added to FireBird with extensions, or to the latest nightly.
