RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format (using the Resource Description
Framework (RDF) - a language for representing information about resources in the
World Wide Web) that allows the syndication of lists of hyperlinks, along with other
information, or metadata, that helps viewers decide whether they want to follow
the link. RSS allows a person's computer to fetch and understand the information,
so that all of the lists that person is interested in can be tracked and personalized
for them. It is a format that's intended for use by computers on behalf of people,
rather than being directly presented to them (like HTML).
