RSS is used to automatically save and display articles or their short descriptions (particularly news bulletins) in a single, convenient location.
What is an RSS feed?
An RSS feed consists of an XML file, which contains the structured content, but no layout, navigation, or other additional information.
What can I do with RSS?
RSS makes it possible for users to subscribe to the content of a Web site. RSS content can be automatically loaded onto your computer (or other devices). This way, subscribers are provided with the latest information automatically and conveniently. Subscriptions are not limited to text content, but can also include audio or video content.
What are the technical requirements for a subscription?
An RSS reader is required to subscribe to an RSS feed. It ensures that the content is automatically updated and displayed in a readable format. Browser-based readers (e.g. Google Reader, My Yahoo, Newsgator, Netvibes) allow users to read their RSS feeds from any computer. Local applications are also available for download. Many RSS readers are available for free on the Internet. An extensive overview of such readers can be found on the Web site www.rss-verzeichnis.de.
