A New Standard

Firefox has changed the web again, this time it comes in the form of a new standard.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced that Internet Explorer 7 will use Firefox’s feed icon to indicate the presence of feeds. Followed by this announcement, the Outlook 12 team announced they’d be doing the same and now there’s a movement to make the icon the standard for describing and making feeds more visible in web pages and applications.
Hopefully changes like these will become common place as Firefox development continues. It’s been a long five years since IE6 was released and in the meantime the web has grown old and tired. Changes like these show the influence Firefox has had thus far on reaching ‘Web 2.0‘ and this sure won’t be the last – the web’s on fire whether you like it or not 😉
