Deja Vu all over again

From BBC News:

Microsoft’s next version of its browser, Internet Explorer 7, will make it easier for people to keep automatically aware of website updates.

Hm… this sounds familiar.

IE7 will have an orange button on the toolbar which will light up when it detects a Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed on a site.

I’m sure there’s already a program available which does the orange button thing.

Users can click on a “plus” button to subscribe to the site’s feed, as they would with a bookmark.

Oh, yes, now I remember: Mozilla Firefox does this already. And has done for… well, ever since it was first released.

Nice to see Microsoft ahead of the game, as usual.
