We've made a small change on the site, but hopefully it will have a big impact.

Thanks to the recommendation from the Client Advisory Team at Acquia, we made the RSS icon in the header a little bigger.

Many subscribers use the RSS feed to

discover new content from opensource.com. We think a bigger icon  will make it easier for more visitors to subscribe to the RSS feed.

Hopefully, the larger icon isn't overkill. As always, feedback is welcome, so let us know what you think.

I look for the RSS icon in the firefox search bar. On the page I tend to miss it.

I like the size upgrade, but I'd also recommend giving the corners some curve. I know its just a style thing, and I'm no designer, but rounded corners just feel more "blingy", you know? Maybe even give the icon that glossy/glassy shine?

Especially since over 80% of the people polled on how they get their content updates from OSDC marked RSS! (I was the one vote so far that checked "other", for non-monthly Mailing list updates).

Just my $.02,
