What is an RSS reader?

You can have updated content delivered to you as news feed by using a RSS reader. RSS is an acronym for "Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary." Web sites summarize their content and make it available to RSS readers when it is posted to a site.

With an RSS reader or aggregator, you subscribe to the RSS feeds for the sites you would normally surf to on the Web and read. When the sites have new content, your reader gets the corresponding postings also. RSS makes Web reading more efficient as postings from multiple sites can be read through a single application, and there is no need to surf the Web to check the sites one at a time for updated content.
