RSS
  • RSS is a family of web feed formats. The initialism "RSS" is variously used to refer to the following standards:
    • Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)
    • Rich Site Summary (RSS 0.91, RSS 1.0)
    • RDF Site Summary (RSS 0.9 and 1.0)
  • specified in XML
  • delivers its information as an XML file called an "RSS feed," "webfeed," "RSS stream," or "RSS channel".

feed aggregators
Feed Aggregators
  • Also known as feed readers.
  • Software that tracks a list of feeds and displays new articles.
  • If you use the Firefox web browser, a website with a feed will be shown in the address bar with a feed icon similar to this one:
  • Many web pages now publish a feed of their content. Usually, they’ll use a graphic to show readers that a feed is available.
  • Feed readers can be downloaded to your computer, or you can use an online feed reader.
  • For a list of available desktop and web-based feed readers, see http://www.newsonfeeds.com/faq/aggregators
