RSS (most commonly translated as "Really Simple Syndication") describes a web feed format used to publish frequently updated works — such as blog entries, news headlines, and audio — in a standardized format. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from various websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.

RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator". A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering into the reader the feed's URL. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new items, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.
