RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML format for sharing headlines and other Web content, allowing users to browse headlines with a news-reader or aggregator program. The RSS news-reader or aggregator checks RSS-enabled Web pages and then organizes and displays any new or updated articles that it finds. Aggregators are typically constructed as extensions to a Web browser (such as Mozilla Firefox), as extensions to an email program (such as Microsoft Outlook), or as standalone programs. There are also Web-based RSS aggregators such as My Yahoo or Bloglines that require no software installation and make the users RSS feeds available on any computer with Web access.
