I'm afraid I couldn't disagree with you more.  I find the RSS support
in Firefox clumsy, at best.  It feels like the FF developers wanted to
get RSS into the application quickly, and the integration with the
bookmark list was the route chosen because it required the least
possible effort.  Reading trunkated headlines in a browser sub-menu
with no indication of date isn't very comfortable or useful.

The integration of RSS with the new version of Thunderbird, however,
has a lot of potential.  At the current version, though, the RSS
reader still needs huge improvements to the user interface.
