Live Bookmarks = RSS

Obviously people are more accustomed to call that feature "RSS" instead of "Live Bookmarks". I think we should take this into account: The article should explain the difference between RSS feeds and Live Bookmarks. Given that this difference is only minor, we should also have an article listed in Category:Firefox which starts with RSS..., e.g. RSS feeds (Firefox). So I moved the redirection page RSS:_Live_Bookmarks_overview (Firefox) to RSS feeds (Firefox) and added it to Category:Firefox. -- Daniel29 00:31, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Since Firefox 2 offers other options for RSS feeds besides Live Bookmarks, maybe this article should be renamed "RSS feeds - Firefox" and recategorized? Just a thought. The page is currently listed only under the "Bookmarks" category (the "Category:Firefox" was removed from this article and from the RSS feeds (Firefox) redirect page awhile back).

"Web feeds" means Atom and RSS. "RSS feeds" are a kind of "Web feeds", no different or more meaningful to the user than "Atom feeds". "Live Bookmarks" are what you get when you bookmark a web feed. There's also the feature to subscribe to the web feed using an external app or web service. This article is confusing the terms. I'd fix it myself, but is this article trying to be about Live Bookmarks or about Web feeds in general?--Np 21:10, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
I edited the article, referring to both RSS and Atom feeds as "Web feeds". Alice Wyman 13:03, 9 February 2007 (UTC)


Can someone post Atom, XML, RDF, and RSS icons to add to the article?--Lethargy 21:35, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
