RSS button is gone in address bar

more options

In firefox 3 if a site has rss it was shown in the address bar. Now this feature doesn't exist. Why Mozilla foundation acting like an asshole?

Because the RSS button is the least clicked button in our UI. When you want to use it, you know that you want to use it, so we don't need to show it all the time.

It's still available, but in the bookmarks menu instead.

Unfortunately, most people don't use RSS. I am a big RSS user myself, but I'm in the minority.

@Limi; I read it before Limi but when I surf to a page that icon was helping us to see if the page has RSS. Now you hide it from eyes.

@Cww; I know that addon. That's not a solution. You and me can add it but a newbea wouldn't know what an RSS is.

Is Mozilla Foundation trying to act like Microsoft? Is it trying to end RSS? This change really lost my sympathy to Firefox.
