Changes were made last night to the RSS Preferences area, and now the spacing in the "Subscribe to this feed" list looks odd to me.

I would think that the web based feed readers would be spaced closer together, like they are in the feed UI. Tim mentioned that he thought that the "No Application selected" should be offset in some way.

mockup of RSS panel that perhaps looks better

I like the added functionality of the new RSS options panel, but to me it looks a little off-kilter wrt the rest of the options panels.

1) The main box that contains the list of feed apps looks unbalanced (due to the asymmetric spacing between the edges of the prefs window)
2) The "Choose Application..." button isn't vertically centered (there is a larger gap at the bottom that at the top when the row it is in is highlighted)
3) The "Choose Application..." button looks strange where it is currently placed.
4) There is no frame round the options (although the tabs option doesn't have such a frame, so maybe this is irrelevant)

I've done a basic mockup of how this could be reworked. It looks better imo, but who am i to say ;) It deals with points 1-4 that I listed, but I wouldn't object to point 4 being INVALID.

This has changed multiple times since it was filed, so it's probably not worth keeping open right now.
