A. RSS feeds allow you receive updated information from a site without manually checking. RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and is essentially a web page your computer can read for you, allowing it to notify you when new updates are available.

Q. How can I read an RSS feed?

To use RSS feeds you can either get an RSS reader, or, if you´ve got a recent browser, you can view the feeds there.
