  • RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way of having content delivered to your desktop. You can customize your view and reduce the time you spend surfing the Web for information and news.
  • RSS content comes to your desktop in the form of feeds. Feeds consist of brief headlines organized into content categories. Simply click on a feed headline or summary to view a full story in your browser.
  • You must use a feed reader to collect RSS feeds. Readers such as Feedly are available for free or low cost.  Other options: NewsBlur, Tiny Tiny RSS.
