Are you wondering why many websites have little orange buttons that are labelled XML or RSS?
RSS is "Rich Site Summary" or "Really Simple Syndication" and using RSS you can save time when keeping up to date with information on the web. Instead of browsing your favourite websites, you can use newsreader software to automatically receive newsfeeds (headlines) from these sites as soon as the feed is updated. The newsreader presents new articles or news posts in a list, giving a line or two of each article and a link to the full article or post. Most RSS subscriptions are free.
