RSS allows for real time update to your favorite web content via RSS Readers. Any website providing RSS content can be included in your RSS Reader to create a single access point for all of your favorite web content. RSS Readers allow you to view RSS feeds as standard content and alert you of any updates. RSS Readers can be downloaded as standalone applications directly to your desktop. Others plug directly into your browser or e-mail software. Portals like My Yahoo act as RSS Readers and allow you to add RSS content directly to your My Yahoo page.
