    I’m one of your subscribers and of course I have to agree that your offer of different feeds is great. I’m very interested in the data you gained about what kind of RSS-programs your readers use. First of course because of my natural curiosity 😉 and second because I too use firefox to read your feeds but not with the integrated function but the Sage Add-on. This add-on adds a lot of functionalities like reading the content of the feed. Are the users of add-ons shown separately in your statistics? You could make me and other interested readers very happy by posting your data.

    I use the FireFox RSS.

    Not quite, Ken:

    Google does not currently report the number of subscribers to your feed when it requests the feed, so the number of subscribers you have on Google home or Google Feed reader may be underrepresented by an unknown amount.
