RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a technology used by millions of internet users to deliver their favorite web content and keep track of their favorite websites. In the early days of the internet, to keep track of your favorite websites, you had to bookmark them and then check back frequently to see if anything new had been added. This got really complicated once you had a lot of bookmarks to keep track of. The main problem for users was that they were doing all the work. Well, someone got smart and decided to deliver updates to their website directly to those who wanted to receive it.

that URL into your RSS Reader of choice. Or, simply click the orange button on the top left of every page and select one of the options.
That's all there is to it.
