Subscribe? No, bookmark!

Well, other apps (like NetNewsWire) don't call it bookmarking, they call it subscribing ... hence the confusion :).

Subscribe? No, bookmark!

Yes, but maybe Safari could have a tool tip over the RSS subscribe button that reads, "Click here to bookmark this RSS feed." And then, when you click on it, the Add Bookmark... drop down window appears.

Maybe the purpose of sending the person to the feed without the drop down menu is so that you can look over the feed and decide if you want to actually bookmark it. But for me personally, I wouldn't have clicked on it if I didn't want to bookmark it, and in any case the bookmark drop down window isn't all that big, so you can a great deal of the RSS feed, enough to change your mind and hit cancel if you desire.

Would anyone else prefer to have the bookmark drop down window appear when you click subscribe? I am going to leave feedback to Apple.

I'm with you. I don't currently have any RSS subscriptions (bookmarks) because of Safari's setup.

I also wish that it automatically sent me an email notice, like Google News, when new articles are found after an RSS update. Possibly with a hyperlinked listing of the subject heading for ease of use.
