Good news, Microsoft Team RSS announced in their blog that they have collaborated with Mozilla to adopt the RSS icon used in Firefox in upcoming version of Internet Explorer, IE 7.
In an attempt to create a standard interface for everyone, the team agreed that it’s in the user’s best interest to have one common icon to represent RSS and RSS-related features in a browser. It wasn’t the first time Microsoft worked with the Mozilla team to exchange ideas and it won’t be the last.
Back in October 8, Microsoft Team RSS posted several designs of the RSS icon to be used in IE 7. I think they were scrapped for good as IE 7 will be using the orange RSS icon of Firefox now. :)
