Ah! Those are supposed to be links you can use to get RSS feeds. To view the current page of Editor's Picks, use the Editor's Picks buttons on the right side of each category.

However, you still shouldn't have gotten a page of text (i.e., raw XML). Here's what I see when I use Firefox:

Chrome has no built-in RSS reader, so I see the raw XML:

and so on...

You can get extensions which allow you to read RSS in Chrome, but in the mean time, make sure you click the link, and not the orange RSS logo

I couldn't reproduce the problem either. I tried all of the editors picks links I could see on the front page. Though, to be fair, I'm using my phone so I'm not sure how well that translates to OS browsers.

(I can't reproduce the fault running FF under XP)
