RSS feeds send users automatic messages if a news item is published on the website.

RSS reader

To read an RSS feed, you will need an RSS reader. This is a computer program that automatically retrieves RSS feeds for you and combines them in a single list. Several free RSS readers are available on the internet. A commonly used one is Feedreader. If you use Firefox or Safari, you won’t need to download an RSS reader; these two browsers have built-in RSS readers.
