That is a cool feature. I tried it out in Netscape 7 and it works fine. I also tried it in Netscape 4.7 and the links didn’t work but the news was displayed below the threads so there was no functionality loss. Good job on using a script the degrades well.
I have now also tested it in Opera and Firefox and it seems to work fine. It doesn’t work in lynx but why would it? One thing that I did notice however is that the config link that shows up in IE does not show up in any of the other browsers. I looked at the source code and it was no where to be seen in the other browsers but it was in the IE code. Are you doing some server side scripting depending on which browser you are using or is this a bug?
Today at lunch, I added the Robotics feed from http://www.prweb.com/ to the news on the portal. If anybody else has any cool (and relevant) RSS feeds that you’d want on the portal, send me the URL via PM.
