So I'm reading dave Winer and he writes, "I got tired of fighting with Chrome and Safari over whether I'm allowed to read RSS files" and he offers a single-function web page to make this possible. And then I'm thinking - wait, what? Chrome and Safari are making it difficult to view RSS files? I use Firefox, so I hadn't noticed this. But how typical is it that these browsers - made by Google and Apple respectively - are set up against RSS. More and more, the open web is a threat to these companies, not an asset.
