What are news feeds?
News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest updates all in one place, as soon as its published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from. Put simply, feeds are web pages designed to be read by computers rather than people. Feeds are also known as RSS ('Really Simple Syndication').
What is RSS?
RSS is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated digital content, such as blogs, news feeds or podcasts. Users of RSS content use programs called feed 'readers' or 'aggregators'. The user subscribes by supplying the link to a feed to their reader. The reader can then check the user's subscribed feeds to see if any of those feeds have new content since the last time it checked, and if so, retrieve that content and feed the relevant link to the user's computer.
How do I use feeds?
Most browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. To subscribe to the feed, just click the RSS icon and your browser should guide you through a simple setup process.
If your browser isn't RSS-friendly, you'll need something called a news reader. This is a software application that checks your feeds, lets you read new articles, and allows you store them on your main computer (just like your email program) or on a web-based service like Hotmail. With most news readers you subscribe to a news feed by clicking on the site's RSS link (usually an orange button) and dragging it to your new reader, or by cutting and pasting the link to the feed into your news reader.
Where can I get a news reader?
Drop by Google's Directory for a list of RSS News Readers. Different news readers work on different operating systems, so make sure you choose one that works with your computer.
