How to use RSS feeds
RSS feeds can be pulled together in two ways.
- Through a web-based reader: A feed reader is a free web-based service. It brings your selected RSS feeds from different websites to a central personalized site that you log into. Browser-based readers let you read your subscriptions from any computer, much like a web-based email service, such as Hotmail.
- Through desktop software you download and install: A downloadable feed reader works like a web-based reader, but exists on your computer, much like an email client, such as Outlook.
