RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It
is XML technology that delivers headlines,
podcasts or other information to desktop RSS
readers or modern Web browsers.
Using RSS, a webmaster can put their content
into a standardized format, which can be viewed
and organized through a RSS-aware software.
A program known as a feed reader or aggregator
can check a list of feeds on behalf of a user
and display any updated articles that it finds.
RSS-aware programs are available for various
operating systems. Client-side readers and
aggregators are typically constructed as standalone
programs or extensions to existing programs
such as web browsers.

What Must I Have To Use RSS?

small, stand-alone programs that run on your
desktop. A list of readers and links to download
them are included below. You may also use free online readers available from sites such as Google and Yahoo.
How Do I Collect And Use RSS Feeds?
You’ll have to perform a couple of
quick steps depending on what kind of RSS
reader you’ve chosen.
For free RSS readers available on the Web,
most setups boil down to this: Subscribe to
a particular RSS feed by right-clicking on
its "RSS" or "XML" logo. Select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy
Link Location" to copy the feed's URL. Then,
paste the URL wherever your particular RSS
reader requires you do so.
Instructions vary for RSS-friendly Web browsers.
For Mac Safari browser users, simply click
on an "RSS" or "XML" logo or link, then choose "Add
to bookmarks" in the right-hand column in
the browser window.
Firefox users can use a similar feature called "Live
Bookmarks," or you can download browser extensions
such as Sage, which is an RSS reader integrated
with a Web browser.
