IE7 to Use Firefox's RSS Feed Icon

Since the announcement that Internet Explorer 7 would add built-in support for RSS news feeds there has been much discussion over two key points: what to call them and what icon to use. Microsoft developers shared conceptual designs in October, but have now settled on a preexisting icon -- Firefox's.

"I'm excited to announce that we're adopting the icon used in Firefox," said Jane Kim, program manager for RSS in IE. "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." Microsoft says it will continue to work with Mozilla to encourage consistency between browsers.
