What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds are free content feeds from Web sites, including www.meritain.com, which contain article headlines and links back to full-text articles on the Web site. The Meritain Health Web site offers RSS to Podcasts as well.
How do I use RSS?
Many browsers now come with built-in news readers. Here are browsers we recommend:
- Firefox - PC and Mac
- Internet Explorera 7 - PC (please note that RSS feeds are not compatible with Internet Explorer 6 or earlier)
- Safari - Mac
Each browser handles RSS feeds a little differently. Clicking the RSS icon will allow you to subscribe to that page's feed. RSS icons look similar to this .
You can also use an online news reader such as MyYahoo or Google Reader. Firefox allows you to add feeds to some of these services automatically. To do so, use Firefox's Tools > Options > Feeds menu.
Lastly, you can use news reader or aggregator software that displays RSS content feeds from websites that you select. These programs are specifically made to display RSS feeds and nothing else. There are many different news readers available, many of which are free. To find news readers to download try searching the Web at Google.com.
What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to be alerted when content that interests you appears on your favorite Web sites. Instead of visiting a particular Web site to browse for new articles and features, RSS automatically tells you when something new is posted online.
