What is RSS? [from Wikipedia]

RSS is a web syndication protocol used to publish websites in a format that a computer program can easily understand. This allows users to repackage the content on their own websites or privately on their own computers.

RSS simply repackages a website as a list of data items, such as the date of a post, a description of the post and a link to it. A program known as an RSS aggregator or feed reader can then check RSS-enabled webpage for the user, and display any updated articles that it finds. This is more convenient than having the user repeatedly visit the sites because it makes sure that the reader only sees material that they haven't seen before.
