What is RSS?

RSS is a popular way to pull in news and information from across the Web. "Really Simply Syndication" allows web sites and blogs to push content to you easily.

RSS feeds can be easily added to a variety of sources, from a My Yahoo home page, to a desktop 'aggrigator' such as sage, or even downloaded much like email in applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird.
