People can also keep track of RSS news in modern browsers like Firefox whith the "Live bookmarks feature" where you set an rss source as a toolbar link, and get an updated bookmark list corresponding to the summaries in the source, which can be opened all at a time if you want.
With Firefox pages that have an RSS feed link, present an RSS logo at the end of the address bar. You can drag it to a link toolbar, and will have an updated list of bookmarks corresponding to the news of that site that usually coincide with the headers on that web page.
There are also MS-Windows applets called "News Readers", that bring to your desktop the news headers and summaries of an RSS feed, and update them automatically so you don't even need to key the news site address. Check Serence Klipfolio and Yahoo widgets.

Well now you can, and it is called RSS feed.
So, to make RSS much easier to understand, in Oprah speak, RSS stands for: I’m “Ready for Some Stories”. It is a way online for you to get a quick list of the latest story headlines from all your favorite websites and blogs all in one place.
Suppose you have 50 sites and blogs that you like to visit regularly. Going to visit each website and blog everyday could take you hours. With RSS, you can “subscribe” to a website or blog, and get “fed” all the new headlines from all of these 50 sites and blogs in one list, and see what’s going on in minutes instead of hours. What a time saver!
That one place where your RSS list is created is called an RSS Reader, and it gathers all the headlines from all the websites and blogs you have subscribed to. In a moment, I will describe how to get an RSS Reader ...

RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats. Although RSS formats have evolved from as early as March 1999, it was between 2005 and 2006 when RSS gained widespread use, and the ("") icon was decided upon by several major Web browsers.
