Refresher: What Is RSS?

Just in case you haven't had yet time to look in to this: all the news, all the time, coming at you. Nobody wants to go to the Internet and search for news stories; I want them to come directly to me. So many news stories; so little time. Instead of spending hours surfing and downloading content from your favorite news websites, you can download or buy a small program that will collect and organize the news for you. Short for Rich Site Summary (sometimes called Really Simple Syndication), RSS is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. Originated in the late '90s, RSS has since become one of the most popular XML formats today.
