RSS active on my Gmail account

I profess absolutely no knowledge of Google’s process for activating new features for Gmail, but when I logged in today, I had the RSS functionality I was talking about a couple of days ago.  Once I saw that I had it, I immediately wanted to change it, so I discovered the new “Web Clips” option in my “Settings” (right next to your e-mail address in the upper corner).

I guess it’s sort of cool to have feed data flash across the top of the screen when I’m logged into Gmail, but beyond that, I don’t find a hell of a lot of value with the RSS support yet — when I click on a headline, it just takes me to the blog post.  Certainly no enough functionality yet to inspire me to switch from Bloglines, but I remain hopeful that more features will be added soon..
