What is RSS?

RSS is an alternative view of a web page that allows you to subscribe and read the content in RSS newsreader software. Whenever the web page is updated your newsreader will automatically display the new item. You will need a RSS reader to view the feeds, otherwise if you follow a RSS link you will only get an unformatted page of code.

How can I use RSS?

There are many news readers available and many are free - see a list of recommended RSS readers at ZDnet Australia.

To subscribe to an RSS feed, right-click on the orange RSS icon and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" to copy the location URL and then paste it into the appropriate place in your RSS reader. Follow the instructions for your particular news reader.

 Really Simple Syndication   RSS of Latest News and Media Releases

Alternatively, you can subscribe within some web browsers. The advantage of this is that you require no extra software installed to make use of RSS feeds that are available.

Mozilla Firefox and Safari 2.0 (Mac OS X - Tiger) support RSS Feeds. To view RSS Feeds using these browsers look for these icons in the URL bar:

Firefox = RSS Logo used in Firefox

When you click on this icon in Firefox, you will be given the choice of adding a 'live bookmark'. The live bookmark will then appear on your browser just under the URL bar and when you click on it a drop-down menu of the latest RSS feeds will appear.

Safari = RSS Logo used in Safari

When you click on this icon in Safari, you will be taken to the built-in RSS reader in Safari. The latest news stories from the RSS feed are then displayed on this page, along with some tools to help you manage RSS feeds.

You can also 'bookmark' a RSS feed which will appear on your browser just under the URL bar and the number of unread news stories will appear next to the name of the bookmark.
