Adding RSS Reader capabilities to Chrome

Today I clicked on a link on Joe Workman's site and received a page of XML gibberish (see below).

XML gibberish :)










The problem I soon discovered is that Chrome does not natively have an RSS reader built in, as Apple's Safari does.
A few minutes later, I had Google'd an answer. See this article of some annoying 'features' of Chrome... one of them is the lack of RSS reader.

Its a quick fix, just follow the link to the Google Chrome store and install the RSS subscription add on and refresh the page of XML gibberish or re-try the link you originally clicked on. You should now see a web page (in may case Joe's blog) instead of the XML gibberish :)
