Plug-in Readers Plug-in news aggregators expand functionality of existing applications to allow users to veiw RSS feeds from within an existing program. Some plug-ins work with web browsers; others work with e-mail clients. An example of a plugin is: NewsGator Outlook - http://www.newsgator.com/outlook.aspx
Websites containing RSS feeds usually have a colorful graphic indicating availability of an RSS feed. The graphic is usually marked 'RSS' or 'XML'. Simply click graphic and enter URL of file into reader. Regardless of RSS reader or news aggregator used by web surfers, process of adding feeds is generally simple. Web surfers need only to enter URL of RSS feed that they wish to view into their news reader. Each time reader refreshes feed information contained within feed is updated and new content in feed will appear in RSS reader.
Finding Feeds In order to find topic-specific feeds, conduct a search on RSS search engines available at RSS Specifications - http://www.rss-specifications.com/rss-directory.htm or try RSS Locator - http://www.rss-locator.com .
