Weblog Comments and NetNewsWire

Among the changes in NetNewsWire 1.0b15 is a new feature: if you ctrl-click (or right-click) on a headline, there’s a new Open Comments in Browser command.

RSS 2.0 feeds sometimes include a comments element, which contains the URL of the page for comments on a given headline. Most feeds in my subscription list don’t include this—at least not yet—but for the ones that do it’s a pretty nice feature. (I think so, at least.)

I hope that more feeds will include comments URLs in the future.

Yes, I will update my own RSS feeds to include comments URLs. (And dates too.)
