What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, or Rich Site Summary, or RDF Site Summary. It is a form of XML file designed specifically for syndicating web content, and contains headlines, text, links, and anything else made available to you by the publisher to view in a RSS viewer.

How does RSS work?
RSS funnels only the content you want to receive directly to your desktop – without using e-mail. It’s a great spam-free way of following your favourite news sites and blogs, and view them all in one browser.
Why are RSS feeds useful?

RSS feeds allow you to comb through an unlimited number of web sites, news feeds, events, headlines, and media without visiting each individual website to check for updates. Feeds update automatically, so you’ll save time and get the news that’s important to you instantly, on your desktop.

It’s that simple. No more fruitless web surfing.
