What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a technology that websites use to conveniently distribute updated content to users. It is widely used on websites that have content that is constantly changing; newspapers, blogs, magazines. Once you subscribe to a site’s RSS feed you’ll receive summaries of new articles as they are published without needing to visit each site individually.
All major web browsers – Firefox, Internet Explorer 7/8, Safari – allow you to read RSS feeds within your browser. You can also download software called a Feed Reader or Aggregator to view feeds through. Some Feed Readers are web-based and others work right from your computer desktop. You can use these programs to view updates from your favourite sites all in one place.
Where do I get an RSS feed reader?
There are many Feed Readers and aggregators available to download for free or for purchase on the Internet. Some popular choices are: Google reader (web-based), FeedReader (Windows) and NewtNewsWire (Mac).
How do I subscribe?
Click on the orange RSS icon and copy the URL from your browser’s address bar and paste it into the corresponding field of your RSS feed reader.
