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
