RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a method of "pushing" web content. Rather than visiting a web page to see if it has been updated, you can subscribe to the page using RSS and then monitor your subscription using a RSS reader. RSS readers aggregate content from multiple web sites into a single display of updated content. For more information on this format see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

Most newer web browsers include a built-in feed reader and subscription mechanism. The following are known to include feed readers:
In supported browsers, typically you can subscribe to a feed by clicking on the icon in the web page or in your browser's address bar. You will be given the option to subscribe to the feed, after which it will appear in your browser's bookmark list.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) and older does not have built-in support for RSS feeds. You will need to find and install an external feed reader, or upgrade to Internet Explorer 7, in order to use RSS feeds.
If you click on a feed icon or link in IE6 and see "code" then you are viewing the raw contents of the RSS file. You will need to install feed reader software before attempting to view and subscribe to feeds. Use the list of feed readers.
