What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) feeds are free content
feeds from Web sites that contain article headlines, summaries
and links back to full-text articles on the web.
What tools do I need to use RSS?
To start using RSS, you need a special news reader or aggregator
that displays RSS content feeds from Web sites you select.
There are many different news readers available, many of which
are free of charge. Most are available as desktop software
that you download and install on your computer. Several Web-based
news readers are available as well. Firefox,
a web browser, supports live bookmarks which allow you to
monitor RSS feeds from your bookmarks tab in your browser.

Once you have set up your news reader, you simply subscribe
to the RSS content feeds you want.
What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to be alerted when content that
interests you appears on your favorite Web sites. Instead
of visiting a particular Web site to browse for new articles
and features, RSS automatically tells you when something new
is posted online.
