FOAF support sneaks into Safari browser

Now this is interesting. The latest Safari browser from Apple is an RSS newsreader too, which we all knew already, right? But did you know its got support for FOAF too?

Well, apparently this is the case. People are still trying to figure out how it does it, but the basic gist is that Safari grabs a feed, then goes looking for an associated FOAF back on your blog site, parses it, then displays "friends" links. Interesting stuff.
