Does anyone know a solution for this? When I got upgraded to this version of Chrome (Version 20.0.1132.34 beta), it started downloading RSS feeds instead of displaying them. Much sadness has ensued :(

AFAIK Chrome has never detected RSS correctly for me. I assumed this was special to Mozilla, with their "we should probably provide a basic version of everything - newsreader, FTP client, etc., even if it makes the browser a bit more bloated." Bit like emacs.

Chrome is a bit like vi, if you want more stuff, there's probably some sort of extension.

Sorry for the emacs/vi analogies, I'm not trying to flame :)

Yes there is an extension for it, by Google too.


Well, no, the extension only allows you to subscribe to an RSS feed, whereas the aforementioned feature in Chrome was that it would open the RSS feed inline.
