Why use RSS?

  • RSS allows you to select the type of news and information you get from Web sites.
  • Once you download your news reader, you can customize it to go and fetch the news every five minutes, or every hour – it's your choice.
  • Because you don't have to subscribe to e-mail lists you have less risk of getting unsolicited (spam) e-mail.
