What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for distribution of content. RSS feeds allow your favorite news, topics, products, blogs and more to appear in your RSS reader as they are posted, without having to visit the Web site.
RSS feeds require an RSS reader tool to function. Most readers are free and only require downloading and installation on your computer.
