RSS News Reader - What is RSS?

By Elvis Australia

RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication' -- it's a format for distributing and gathering content from sources across the Web, including newspapers, magazines, and blogs.

RSS allows you to see when websites from all over the internet have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and articles in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to remember to visit each site every day.

It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.

RSS Reader

The first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added to them.

There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.

Microsoft Outlook has its own RSS reader.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want to receive in your news reader, by finding and subscribing to the relevant RSS feeds.

How do I get a news reader?

There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.
