Things to know about RSS, atom etc

atom is a ‘news feed‘, that gets updated whenever a site is updated.
 
There are various news readers / aggregators that you can download. you can add a link to any ‘feeds-powered’ website. Once you set it up, you dont need to visit the site every once in a while to see it is updated.
 
The news reader will tell you which one of your favorite sites got any new content. Then you can read those, either within the news reader or open your favorite browser to read the site.
 
‘RSS’ or ‘Rich Site Summary’ is equivalent to atom, and does the same job.
 
I would suggest to use ‘Gush’ , a news reader software for both RSS / atom .
