Recently, I came across the term called RSS which denotes Rich Site Summary. All it means is that, you can keep track of websites for its contents without having to manually visit the list of websites that you normally read. You just log-on to this one site which keeps track of all the latest information from the sites that you are interested in. There are several feeder/aggregator software out in the web. Some of them run on your PC and downloads the feeds as and when you log-on to internet so that you can read the information offline. Some of the web-based software needs you log-on to a site which will contain the feeds from your preferred websites.
I tried Google Reader and it has a descent interface that is simple to use. The log-in is the same as your gmail-account. Try using it and I am sure you will like it…No more worries about missing a blog or news from your favourite website, unless you have too much time at your disposal and you insist that you like to manually type the web site every few minutes…:)… If others have suggestions/experiences about using RSS versus Atom versus XML, do share it.
