What is RSS/Atom?

Atom and RSS (Really Simple Syndication) are similar technologies that help you keep track of new content on your favorite sites immediately after it is published. With the RSS/Atom format there is no need to visit your favourite sites one by one to receive news from them; all you have to do is enter their RSS information stream into a compatible program and all your news sources will appear on a single screen.

It is basically an information channel that condenses the content of a website into brief headlines, which are stored in a ‘feed'. You can then "subscribe" to this feed and run it through a piece of software called a reader. This enables you to read the summarised content of the site - quick, easy and completely under your control.

RSS and Atom are 2 different formats of presenting the news feeds. Most news feeds readers support both formats.
