What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a tool to help you to keep up with news and information that’s important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Through a simple language known as XML (eXtensible Markup Language), content is delivered to your reader without you even having to visit the website. This delivery of content is called a “feed.” This feed is also referred to as RSS Feed, web feed, RSS stream, or RSS channel.
How can I use an RSS feed?
RSS feeds are meant to viewed by RSS readers. Some newer internet browsers support the viewing of RSS feeds, but the most commonly used browsers do not. An RSS reader is a small software program that collects and displays RSS feeds.
There are different versions of RSS Readers; some are accessed using a browser, and some are downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer. Downloadable applications, on the other hand, let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.
