What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating Web content, such as news headlines. A Web site provider packages the information in a standard format, called a feed, and sends them to anyone who has 'subscribed' to them.

How do you subscribe to an RSS feed?

First you need to have a news aggregator (sometimes called a 'newsreader'), a software tool that collects and displays the feeds you choose to subscribe to. There are many programs out there to do this, some are free; others charge a fee.

Why would you want to subscribe to an RSS feed?

Unlike e-mail subscriptions, RSS feeds don't clutter your e-mail inbox. News aggregators also give you more flexibility in what you subscribe to than e-mail subscriptions, and more flexibility in how information is displayed. And if you read a lot, it can save you time compared to browsing all the sources in your bookmarks or Favorites folder.
