What are RSS feeds?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a simple way for you to keep up to date with new content on the web without having to visit numerous web sites. For example, you could see all the content you are interested in from a single place (your browser, RSS feed-readers etc..)
To find out more about how you can use RSS feeds, see Wikipedia's RSS article (External link)

How to use an RSS feed
If a website has provided an RSS feed that is available to the public, your web browser may indicate that it has detected the RSS content. More recent browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 display a 'feed detected' icon similar to this:
Your browser software may allow you to add a bookmark, or favourite, that can read our RSS information and allow you to visit a page containing more information about the job, event, or press release.
Alternatively... you may use dedicated RSS feed software called an aggregator. An aggregator program will automatically download the RSS feeds that you have subscribed to and allow you to browse them even while you are offline. Rather than make specific recommendations for aggregator software, you may view a comprehensive list (external link) of them, or read a more detailed description (external link) of aggregators.
