What Is RSS?

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” (among other things) and is a way to track news and other “syndicated content” using XML.

Where To Find An RSS Reader

An RSS reader, also known as a news reader or news aggregator, is software that lets you subscribe to RSS feeds. There are many free RSS readers available.
