How Do I Subscribe? In order to subscribe (via an RSS feed) you will need two things, an RSS reader (the application that collects anddisplays news headlines and summaries) and the URL (web address) of the RSS feed you wish to read.
1. Download and install an RSS reader/news aggregator. 2. Locate the URL of the RSS feed that you wish to read. 3. Insert the URL of the news feed into the RSS reader (there is usually an "add feed" button). 4. The information in the feed will be updated when the feed contains new content.
What RSS Reader Should I Use? There are a number of RSS readers available directly through web browsers (e.g. Firefox, Safari), through web sites(e.g. FeedBurner, FeedReader, RSSReader, etc.), or as standalone applications (e.g. BlogExpress, Syndirella, Pheeder,NetNewsWire, etc.).
