About RSS web feeds

RSS (really simple syndication) is a popular way of sharing information on the web. By 'subscribing' to a feed on one of your favourite websites, you can automatically receive the latest news and updates without having to re-visit the website. RSS can bring the headlines of new content directly to your own computer, so you can quickly find all the articles that interest you from across the web.

You'll need a news 'reader' or 'aggregator' which is a piece of software that automatically checks for updates on your selected feeds and notifies you. News readers are available in several forms:

  • some web browsers such as Firefox, Opera and Safari incorporate a news reader facility, and will automatically check a website for a RSS feed for you
  • readers such as FeedDemon (for Windows) and Newsfire (Macintosh) can be downloaded and installed as freestanding applications on your own computer
  • there are also web-based readers on which you can create a personal account, such as Google Reader
