What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it is the ideal way to receive the content you want from the web - delivered to your desktop in an easily manageable way.
Any site that displays the RSS logo will be able to provide a constantly updated source of news and information delivered to your PC via a piece of software called a an aggregator, or an RSS Reader.
This reader will check you favourite websites several times a day for new content, meaning you do not have to spend time surfing the web looking for updates.
The RSS reader will display the headlines and a brief synopsis of anything new it finds on your pre-selected favourites - allowing you to decide whether to click through to the site and read the whole story.
So how do you get started using RSS?
You will need to download an RSS reader, many of which are free.
Readers you could try include RSS Reader, Sharp Reader, NewsGator and Feedreader. You will be able to find all of these - and many more - via any internet search engine.
Most sites that offer RSS feeds use a similar orange RSS button, but some may just have a normal web link to the feed. Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for RSS feeds when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to RSS feeds much easier.
Once you have found the RSS links on your favourite sites and added them to your reader you will always been on top of all the latest information you want right across the web.
