Updated RSS Feed

What the heck is RSS? Put simply, RSS (Really Simple Syndication) allows you to read the content you want, when you want to, wherever you want to. It's a cross-platform, portable way of formatting content so that the articles you see here can show up, for example, on your personal Google homepage. Google's personalized homepage allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds like the one we publish so that you never have to remember to check the site for updates. Your homepage is updated automatically whenever there's something new to read.

Some browsers even have the ability to "bookmark" feeds. For example, in Firefox you can click the orange RSS icon (lower right hand corner of the latest version) to subscribe to a live feed. When you subscribe, you'll see bookmarks to all of the recent articles here under the "Bookmarks" tab in the toolbar. You can also download any of the free software-based feed readers available on the web. They work a lot like email inboxes.

So, how do you use it? Subscribing to a RSS feed is easy. Just click the orange RSS icon in the right column and follow the instructions on the RSS page:

Just wanted to alert folks to a neat new extension to FireFox - Sage. (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/77/) Since RSS really works best in a browser, this light-weight RSS feeder works great. I've used it for about 3 months, and won't use any other types :). Free, and works fine with Firefox. Check it out!
