RSS Feeds

RSS feeds are a great way to keep up-to-date with news from your favorite websites.

RSS feed icon

This icon commonly indicates an RSS feed.

An RSS document, called a "feed," is a syndication of information supplied by a website. Anyone with an RSS feed reader can subscribe to an RSS feed; once subscribed, the reader checks for new content and updates as it becomes available. This makes it easy to keep up-to-date with changes without needing to manually visit the website every day.

For example, the MOTU.com News RSS feed updates every time a news story is added to MOTU.com. If you are subscribed to that RSS feed, the next time your RSS reader checks for updates it will notify you about the newly posted story, usually providing the title, a description, and a link to the full article.

How to view MOTU's RSS feeds

RSS readers can be found within many popular browsers, including Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 7, and Opera. Viewing or subscribing to an RSS feed is often as simple as clicking on an RSS icon in the address bar.
