The Chiclet problem surfaces at the Syndicator Blog. The post is spot on. The rash of badges is totally out of hand.
Attensa has another approach to finding feeds and easily subscribing from a Web page or blog from your browser.
We use a toolbar in IE or Firefox to identify feeds and to let you see what kinds of articles are available before deciding to subscribe. This eliminates the need to clutter a page with branded badges. On the one hand this may not be the brightest marketing move on Attensa's part... but it sure makes sense from a user's perspective.
Let us know what you think.
