New to RSS?
RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication', or 'Rich Site Summary'. Essentially this is a 'feed' or 'news feed' that puts you in control of the information you want delivered to your desktop. You can subscribe to RSS feeds from multiple web sites, scan through all their latest headlines in one place and directly access content of interest with a single click.
Wherever you see these links - 'RSS', 'Atom', or as in our case - , on a page, then you know that the page you are viewing has a corresponding feed.
How do I use RSS?
The only thing that you really need for an RSS account is a reader to be able to subscribe to feeds. The reader is commonly known as either a feed reader, news reader, RSS reader or RSS client. The reader lets you subscribe to any feeds you are interested in, checks for updates and displays them to you as they arrive.
There are several readers available and they come in two forms - web-based or as an installable program. The web-based clients enable you to access your feeds from wherever you are, by just logging into the website that manages your feeds. Two of the most popular web-based tools are Bloglines and Newsgator Online, both of which are free clients for feed reading, but there are many more out there with a lot of different features.
An installed program still allows for your feeds to be stored for you, even if you're not connected to the Internet. There are several that are totally free or at least free to try out. Two of the most popular for installing on your computer are FeedDemon or Newsgator for Microsoft Outlook and for those on a Mac with OS X, the most popular reader is NetNewsWire.
