What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and is used to describe the technology used in creating feeds. A feed, also known as RSS feed, XML feed, syndicated content, or web feed, is frequently updated content published by a website. It is usually used for news and blog websites, but can also be used for distributing other types of digital content, including pictures, audio or video.
Feeds can also be used to deliver audio content (usually in MP3 format) which you can listen to on your computer or MP3 player.
This is referred to as podcasting.
How to use feeds [back to top]
Setting up RSS feeds requires a news reader, a software that makes it simple to collect your favorite site feeds in one place. News readers are available in several different versions, including ones accessible through your browser and others that are downloadable applications.
Browser-based news readers allow you to view your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer. Downloadable applications let you store the feeds on your main computer in the same way that you would download your e-mail using Outlook or access it on a Web-based service such as Yahoo Mail.
