- How can I use RSS feeds?
You might not need anything to take advantage of RSS – newer browsers (the application you're viewing this site with) like Firefox and Safari have built-in RSS news readers or aggregators. If you're using one of these browsers (and you should be), you can simply click the RSS feed link, and bookmark that page to stay updated on new posts.
If you click the RSS feed link and you don't see anything, you need a news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds. There are hundreds of different news readers available, many of which are free of charge. Some are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer, but several web-based news readers are available as well. Once you have set up your news reader, you simply subscribe to the RSS content feeds you want.
