RSS Feed (Really Simple Syndication)


What is RSS?
Put simply, it's a way of keeping up to date with what's new at your chosen websites, without having to visit them to see if there's anything new - the latest information is delivered automatically.

How do I use RSS feeds?
You need to get a special bit of software, called an RSS Reader. Don't worry - many are free!

So which RSS Reader should I use?
It's up to you - there's a huge choice.
We'll have some recommendations soon - in the meantime, please see google for their list of RSS readers.
