Allows web sites to register themselves as possible handlers for content of a particular MIME type.
navigator.registerContentHandler(mimeType, uri, title);
mimeTypeis the desired MIME type as a string.
uriis the URI to the handler as a string.
titleis the title of the handler presented to the user as a string.
navigator.registerContentHandler( "application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed", "http://www.example.tld/?foo=%s", "My Feed Reader" );
For Firefox 2 and above, only the
application/rss+xml MIME types are supported. All values have the same effect, and the registered handler will receive feeds in all Atom and RSS versions (see bug 391286).
