What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for distributing information from websites to desktop and mobile devices. A newsreader application accesses the RSS feeds you choose to bring your favorite information sources to you. Numerous newsreaders are available, including freeware, shareware and browser-based options.

How do I add a feed?

If you already have an RSS reader set up, choose a feed by right-clicking on the "XML" icon, and select "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer) or "Copy Link Location" (Firefox), then paste the feed location into the RSS address/URL field of your reader. An alternate method is to click and drag the XML icon, and drop it into the RSS address/URL field. You may also need to click a "subscribe" link to finish the subscription process.
