    I have FeedDemon set as my default news reader.

    If I'm in Firefox and click the RSS symbol, FD loads and the subscribe dialog opens for the feed in question.

    In IE though, if I click the RSS link, it shows me the XML code if I have the "Feed Reading View" turned off, and gives me the Reading View if is turned on.

    Can't I get IE to send the feed over to Feed Demon as Firefox does? I do believe IE 7 did it fine, but I cannot get IE 8 to do it.

    Am I out of luck here?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Hans:

    Yes, they put out v3 when they integrated with Google News in the last month or so.

    From what I read on the developer's website, FeedDemon 3.0 should be compatible with Internet Explorer 8. But I don't have any experience with it myself...

    That's what I would think too, Hans. Nick Bradbury posted an answer, to just "drag and drop the page into FD. That works, but it isn't ideal.

    Too bad IE isn't set up to select a default reader if you want to work outside of IE...

    Oh well, thanks anywho...
