How Do I Use RSS?
First you will need a news aggregator (also known as a news reader, an RSS reader, etc.) An aggregator is software that will load news "feeds" from a website, and monitor it for updated materials. RSS readers are available for most types of personal computers, operating systems, PDAs and cell phone. Many modern browsers also have aggregators built in.
Second, simply cut and paste the URL for the RSS feed into the aggregator, and it does the rest. Your aggregator will alert you anytime new updates are posted to the feed, and will keep track of all read articles.
