Restore The RSS Button To Safari With This Simple Extension



With the Safari 6.0 update, Apple decided we don’t need no stinkin’ RSS button in our web browser, so they took it out. Whether you agree with Cupertino or not is beside the point, the RSS button is gone and it’s probably not coming back.

Thankfully, one developer spotted the change months ago and already has a quick solution to bring back the RSS button to Safari.

Subscribe to Feed is a Safari extension that adds a small RSS type button to the left of the toolbar in Safari. Anytime a page offers RSS or Atom feeds, users can click the button to open the feed in an external RSS Reader app. So you’ll still need to use a third-party app to read all your RSS feeds, but the extension makes it easy to add new websites to your list.

The developer behind the Subscribe to Feed extension, Daniel Jalkut, says the extension is “beta-quality” at the moment, but so far it seems pretty solid.
