What is RSS?

RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is the easiest way to be notified when information that interests you is posted on your favorite web sites. Once you've subscribed to an RSS feed, you'll receive the latest article headlines, summaries, and links to articles-all in one convenient place. Here at Orvis.com, it's a great way to stay up to date on our newest collections, news, and articles, and to get advance notice of sales, promotions, and special deals.

 

What is an RSS reader?

To begin using RSS, you'll need a "reader"-a simple program that gathers information from the websites you've chosen. There are a number of free readers available that are easy to set up and use, whether you choose desktop software or an embedded reader that functions within a web browser. Some services even allow you to add RSS capability to customizable web pages, such as:

· My Yahoo!     · iGoogle     · NewsGator
