I’ve been holding off on talking about my favorite new Firefox feature because I wanted to wait until you all had Firefox 3. The new feature lets Firefox detect enclosures in RSS feeds and send them to your favorite audio or video podcasting client. This lets you click on an RSS feed and have it get sent to Miro if it’s video, iTunes if it’s audio, and a desktop news reader if it’s text.
The new feed preview pane sums it up. (Click to enlarge.)
This is my favorite feature, of course, because it makes for a much smoother connection from web browsing to subscribing in Miro. And maybe the best part is that it was developed for Firefox 3 by the Miro team! It’s a perfect example of how open-source organizations can work together to give everyone a better experience. Here’s developer Will Guaraldi’s writeup of the new feature.
