What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically without having to go to a Web site to look for their latest updated content. If you subscribe to the feeds they will let you know as soon as they have some new content of interest to you.

Just choose which RSS feeds you want, click on the RSS of XML icon to subscribe to the feed, and it will automatically retrieve updates. You get the new content as soon as it is published.
