What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a way to distribute and receive breaking information and other web content to your desktop. Instead of having to go back to a website to see what’s new, you can have new information delivered to you automatically. The RSS feeds allow you to receive up-to-the-minute announcements on your computer desktop.

What Is an RSS Reader?

An RSS reader is a small software program that collects and displays RSS feeds. It allows you to scan news from a number of sources in a central location.

Where Can I Get an RSS Reader?

Newer versions of most browsers, such as Firefox and Internet Explorer have built in RSS readers. If you’re using a browser that doesn’t currently support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available on the web (see HERE); some are free to download and others are available for purchase. Some news readers are programs you download and install on your computer and others are web-based services that you access with your web browser.
