How do I start using RSS feeds?
The first thing you need is a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the RSS feeds you have subscribed to and lets you read the articles that have been added to them. There are several different ways to do this, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using services such as Thunderbird, or keep it on a web-based service like Googlemail.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want to receive in your news reader, by finding and subscribing to the relevant RSS feeds. For example, if you would like the latest Wolfson product news, simply click the relevant RSS link on this page and paste the URL into your reader. Some browsers, including Firefox, Explorer 7, Opera and Safari, automatically check for RSS feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon in the URL bar when they find one. This can make subscribing to RSS feeds much easier.
