RSS News Feeds

What are RSS News Feeds?

RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication'.  Put plainly, it allows you to select specific content and have it delivered automatically.

This takes the hard work out of searching for content on, or off line.

Not all web sites currently provide RSS, but its popularity is growing rapidly.  Many world class sites, such as the BBC, The Times, The Guardian, New York Times and CNN do provide it.

How do I start using RSS feeds?

The first thing you need is a news reader.  There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a web browser, and some are stand alone applications.  All allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want.

Once you have a news reader, all you have to do is select the content.  Sites that offer RSS feeds have orange buttons marked 'RSS' or 'XML'.

You can subscribe to the feed in various ways, by dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

The way forward.

RSS is becoming more popular as a way of retrieving information.  Web browsers, such as Firefox, Opera and Apple's Safari, all have built in RSS functionality.
Microsoft's
forthcoming version of Windows has an RSS reader built in.  It's release should increase the scope of RSS feeds dramatically.
