RSS FEED: What's This?
A RSS feed is a great way to scan certain sites as well as news in a quick and easy way. A RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication) needs an RSS reader. There are many that are free and many that are not. I will not recommend any, but I will tell you which ones I use.
Sage: An extension of the Mozilla Firefox browser. It is great, simple to use and gives you everything you need without a new piece of software.
Thunderbird: Another Mozilla project. It is an e-mail client that has an RSS feeder built right in. It works well for both. I have been using both the of these fine FREE products for almost a year.
Kilfolio: another free one that is highly customizable and has lots of little bells and whistles. However, if you scan dozes of feeds at a time it can be trying on the eyes.
Opera: Another great browser with an RSS reader built in. I use this browser mainly for those very few pages that Firefox does not render properly (there are a few).
I highly recommend an RSS reader for all of you news junkies as well as those who love to read blogs. You will find it is much easier to scan news in these readers than going to all of the sites you like. When ever you see the orange little icon that says XML or RSS
You will know that they have an RSS feed. Most of your top news sites offer it, and I suspect those that don't will soon.
A great place to start getting decent news feeds is at Moreover.
