What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way for you to see when content that interests you appears on your favorite websites. Instead of visiting a particular website to browse for new articles and features, your RSS feed automatically updates when new content is posted on line.  RSS feeds generally contain article headlines, summaries, and links back to full-text articles.  For more information about RSS feeds, see the Wikipedia article.

How do I subscribe to an RSS feed?
There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds.

Browser
Some browsers have built-in RSS readers (e.g., Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2, etc.). If you have one of those browsers, you will be able to view RSS feeds directly in your browser.

RSS Reader
You can also install a reader that displays RSS feeds from the websites you select, enabling you to view hundreds of headlines at once. After installing the reader, you can add each feed manually from the website by clicking on the "RSS" orange button next to the feed.

Personalized Pages
You can also read RSS feeds from personalized pages.  For example, My AOL, My Yahoo! and iGoogle users can now add RSS feeds directly to their personal pages.

Where can I get a news reader?
There are web based news readers, which track and report feeds so that you can view them in your browser, any time you want. Common web based aggregators include:
• Google Reader (https://www.google.com/reader)
• My Yahoo! (http://e.my.yahoo.com/config/my_init)
• NewsGator Online (http://www.newsgator.com/home.aspx)

There are also desktop news readers, which can be installed on your computer. They help you to gather and review your selected feeds in your computer itself. Some of the popular desktop aggregators are:
• FeedDemon (Windows)
  (http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLProduct.aspx?ProdId=FeedDemon)
• NetNewsWire (for Mac)
  (http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLProduct.aspx?ProdID=NetNewsWire)
• SharpReader (Windows)
  (http://www.sharpreader.net)
