RSS  What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It's a format that web sites and blogs can use to send updated headlines to you. Syndication means you don't have to visit each site individually to see what's new -- you simply scan headlines or brief article summaries and click to read the full text. That's the "really simple" part. And it's "really simple" for publishers to make their content accessible this way too.

Because RSS is a relatively new format, not all sites currently syndicate their content in this way. However, many notable sites already do offer RSS, and every day the RSS offering grows. For example, news sites such as the Christian Science Monitor, the BBC, New York Times and CNet's use RSS to syndicate news headlines and summaries. Other sites use RSS to alert customers of new products or upcoming events.
