If you’re like me, you’ve been slowly giving up on Firefox for a while now, but you hate going into your Google Reader and manually adding a feed. Chrome solved this issue, but doesn’t package the functionality by default, even though they seriously should.
To get Chrome extensions, a trip to the Google Chrome Extensions Gallery will be the best place to go. For the RSS Subscription icon, once on the gallery, you’ll need to search for RSS because such a common and useful tool would never be on the front page – or just use this link to get there quickly.
Then, on the page simply hit the big blue install button. You’ll download the extensions then, and then be prompted if you want to really install it. You of course do agree and you now have a brand new RSS subscription icon, just like your favorite Firefox used to.
