How can you use RSS?
RSS feeds can be incorporated into a variety of different "readers," giving you access to the headlines in a variety of different ways.
Blog software: For example, RSS feeds are commonly incorporated into weblogs. Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for purposes: traditionally journalism, personal journals, group discussions around a topic, and many combinations in-between.
News readers or aggregators: These software programs will collect, update and display RSS feeds from any number of sources. A number of free and commercial news aggregators are available, with Google Reader being one of the more popular.
Web browsers: Some web browsers, including Firefox, allow you to incorporate RSS feeds that will be downloaded and viewable through the browser. In the case of Firefox, they are called "Active Bookmarks." Internet Explorer users can download a plugin called RSSExplorer.
Personalized web sites: Some web sites that allow readers to personalize their pages -- My Yahoo!, for example -- also allow you to incorporate RSS feeds onto your personalized pages. You may click the "Add to My Yahoo!" button to add a feed directly to your personalized page in Yahoo!.
