RSS is a great way to have web content centralized so that when you have catch-up time you don’t have to visit numerous websites. There are many feed readers available and I have chosen to use the extension available for my browser.
To find an RSS feed reader that works for you, Google “RSS feed reader.”
I use the Chrome browser and the RSS Feed Reader plug in.
How to Follow an RSS Feed
Time needed: 5 minutes.
The steps below provide instruction on how to find and follow RSS feed(s) using a Chrome browser and the RSS Feed Reader plug in. This instructions assumes you have already installed both .

This opens the RSS Feed Reader window.

In the Search field enter either the URL of a website, or a specific RSS url, or you can enter a search term, or browse curated categories.
