What is RSS?
RSS allows you to see when new content is added to a website. Instead of visiting the site and clicking many pages, the new content is delivered to you via RSS feeds.
How can I use RSS?
The first thing you need is a newsreader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and tells you when new information is added to them. Newsreaders are either accessible using software installed on your machine or they are web-based. Software-based news readers store your RSS feeds on your main computer and Web-based newsreaders are accessible on any computer with access to the internet.
When you have chosen a newsreader, you need to select what content you want to receive. Do this by finding and subscribing to the RSS feeds you are interested in. RSS feeds are often denoted by an orange RSS button on the left of the link. Click the link and drag the URL of the RSS feed into your newsreader, or cut and paste the URL into a new feed in the newsreader.
How do I get a newsreader?
There are many different newsreaders available. Different newsreaders work on different operating systems, so you need to choose one suitable for your computer. Below are some newsreaders you could try.
