What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is a cool technology that allows you to get news headlines delivered directly to your desktop.
Many Web sites, including AZStarNet.com, provide RSS feeds that contain article headlines, summaries and links back to full-text articles. You view these feeds on a news aggregator that you either download separately or use within your browser. When we publish new stories, your aggregator shows the headline of the story and a brief blurb, both of which are clickable back to the full version of the story.
What do I need to use RSS?
To start using RSS, you need a special news aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from Web sites you select. There are many different aggregators available, many of which are free of charge. Most are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer. Also, some browsers offer RSS integration, such as FireFox and Safari.
