What are feeds?
Feeds are a simpler way of keeping up to date with web sites. Rather than having to regularly check your favourite web sites for new stories and articles, you receive summaries of articles automatically as soon as they are published. There's no better way of keeping bang up to date. If something interests you, simply click on it to be taken to the full article on the web site.
What software do I need?
There is a wide array of feed-reading software available for PCs and Macs, or you can use an online service. Some web browsers also have feed reading built in. For PCs we recommend FeedReader3 (www.feedreader.com). For Macs, Vienna (www.vienna-rss.org) is an excellent choice.
If you'd rather not install software on your computer, or you want to be able to access your feeds from any computer, use an online service. Feedly is especially good, though Yahoo and Microsoft Live! have similar services.
