RSS is an increasingly popular format which web site publishers use to deliver a quick summary of the latest articles on their sites. Using RSS a publisher can give web browsers the title and a brief summary of a new article, along with the date and time at which it was last updated and other information.
By using an RSS reader, you can easily keep track of breaking news or keep up to date with the latest articles from your favourite site, all at a glance without actually visiting that site. For instance, you could see the latest headlines from the BBC or Reuters and go directly to articles which would interest you. More useful information on RSS feeds at the BBC Website here
