There are a lot of new features in Mozilla’s Firefox 4 web browser. There are also a number of old features that are now gone — or at least appear to be.
One of the things that I first noticed with Firefox 4 (when I shifted to it for daily use) was the omission of the RSS indicator as part of the main browser user interface.
In Firefox 3.6 (and all the way back to least Firefox 1.5 if I’m not mistaken..) when you visit a URL that has an associated RSS feed, the main Firefox address bar had a small RSS icon. It provided an easy way for users to subscribe to RSS…and now in Firefox 4 it’s gone.
