David Hyatt, former Mozilla/Chimera über-nurb and current Safari nurb-extraordinaire, ponders the merging of RSS aggregators and browsers. It's awesome that David - in public view no less - is considering these things. And to you tabbed browsing fans, David gives you some hope, saying "tabs provide one with a means of efficiently handling a lot of information."
My own personal take: rss:// should be a protocol. NNW should grab an RSS link and add the subscription. Simple as that. It happens when I click an rtsp: (QuickTime) link. It happens when I click an aim: (AIM) link. It certainly happens when I click mailto: ftp: http: https: and others. It used to happen when I clicked gopher: links too .
P.S. I think it's funny that David says "news" when he really means RSS or something like that - news, after all, has its own protocol: NNTP. C'mon now David, I'd hardly call this site news! Heh heh.
