RSS stands for Really Simple Syncication. RSS allows users to keep track of multiple websites via feeds through a single application with a uniform interface. RSS is too complicated for the typical Zoomer to understand, so only oldfags use it these days. It, however, can be extremely useful for things like keeping track of Youtube subscriptions without a Google account and torrent releases if you are a /ptg/ fag and need to keep a seed ratio.

Recommended RSS Clients


Graphical Interface:

  • Liferea - Linux Feed Reader is a featureful graphical feedreader for the Linux desktop. It features reading articles offline, playing podcasts, and synchronizing with multiple cloud services (including the self-hosted TinyTinyRSS).
