Add A New Feed Reader Option to Firefox

I was just looking at the MonkeyChow news reader project as it uses Simplepie (which is a pretty killer library for processing feeds) and Gregarious still doesn't (which means some Atom feeds are screwed up). I wasn't particularly impressed with the reader, but while I was playing with it I noticed this chunk of Javascript that added some functionality I didn't know existed *at all *:


Wow. You call this method and it prompts you to adds a news reader to Firefox. If you use a reader on your own server like I do, then this is pretty damn handy. I've always wondered how you add readers to the list of choices that FF gives you when you click on the feed icon in the task bar, as there doesn't seem to be any GUI for it, now I know.
