News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest list of headlines as soon as it is published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from. It is an easy and free way to keep alerted of new content from your favourite web sites.

Feeds are also known as RSS. There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people prefer 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
In general, the first thing you need is something called a "news reader" or "feed aggregator". This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.

Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Hotmail.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive. Whenever you see an orange icon similar to this rss feed you may add the feed by dragging it into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the URL into a new feed in your news reader. To see the URL you may click on the icon to view it's properties (right click in Firefox) or just click on it to bring up in the browser's address bar. Most sites that offer feeds use a similar orange button, but some may just have a normal web link.
There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.

Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.
