Introduction to RSS
This will undoubtedly be obvious to some readers, but for those of you who don’t know what RSS is, it stands for “Really Simple Syndication,” and it allows you to easily track the activity of websites you’re interested in, without having to go to the site every day and see if something’s changed. It’s great for monitoring sites that get updated regularly, like blogs.
To make it work you need something called an RSS Reader. You give the reader the “feed address” for the site you’re interested in and from then on, the reader monitors the site, tells you when there’s been a new posting and gives you a quick summary. If you’re interested, you click the summary and the full page opens in your browser.
To subscribe, just click the RSS icon in your browser’s address bar. Typical RSS icons look like this: Safari: Firefox: Internet Explorer: . You can also click the RSS Feed links on the home page.
