RSS Feeds

Of all the thousands of people I'm connected to, I only know of two people who actually use RSS feeds. (+Panah Rad and +Sallie Alys Montuori)

Are there more people out there who use RSS feeds? Do you use a browser to keep track of your RSS feeds? If not, what software do you use now?

If you do a Google search for "Is RSS" you'll find I'm not the only one asking this question. It seems like this technology is getting left behind.

I see Firefox is the only Mac browser that currently supports viewing an RSS feed page and saving them as "Live Bookmarks". Chrome just shows the raw file and oddly enough, my Safari opens up an email program. What is the consensus on the PC browsers?

Anyway, I'll be watching this site for RSS traffic, but in the past my client's sites have never received any RSS traffic except me, testing the link.

CSS: How to hide text

…when you just want to show an image (but you can't or shouldn't delete the text). I use this when I want to use a button image and not show the text at all when using an "a href" link.

I've used that -9999px hack before. The following one seems less extreme.

text-indent: 100%;
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: hidden;

Replacing the -9999px hack (new image replacement) – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
The Daily Report’s 2003 redesign uses (and our book explained) an image replacement technique intended to combine the benefits of accessibility with the power of graphic design. We christened this method Fahrner Image Replacement (FIR) in honor of Todd Fahrner, who first suggested it to us.
