What is RSS?

Do you like getting the most up-to-the-minute news but don't want to have to browse around websites in order to hunt it down? Then RSS might be for you.

Feed IconRSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication," and is a popular way to easily distribute news on the Web. It allows users to "subscribe" to a web-site as one would subscribe to a newspaper and then receive the latest information published from that site. Don't worry, there are no forms to fill out, usernames and passwords to remember, or email and spam involved.
