What Is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) provides a convenient way to get information from a variety of sources, including news stories and updates to web sites, as soon as it's published without having to visit the websites. To take advantage of this, you need a reader, a software program which is like a cross between a browser and an email program, which regularly looks at the web sites that you subscribe to and tells you when something new has appeared. Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Internet Explorer automatically check for feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier.
There are many different RSS readers available, including:
Microsoft Outlook can also present RSS feeds alongside your mail.
