What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for news content distribution. It is simple, fast, and light on your bandwidth. It does NOT require you to even visit our blog website unless you are interested in a particular headline and its summary. It empowers you to read and find the news you want. What software do you need?

To read and subscribe to RSS, you need a newsreader
software. These software are usually free (no charge) and take up very little
space on your machine (except for sophisticated versions which also allow
publishing).

If you use Windows, consider
Headline
Viewer
and Amphetadesk. If you use a Mac (OS X),
consider NetnewsWire Lite and Amphetadesk for
Mac.

Some others include HotSheet, a Java 2 application that runs on
Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX. Another application, Radio
UserLand
, is an industrial strength newsreader and
publisher.
