Through the use of an “RSS news reader” desktop application or web-based “RSS aggregator,” content from multiple sources can be viewed in one place.

Accessing RSS Feeds
To read the Youth Media Reporter Headlines RSS feed, you usually must either install RSS reader software or have access to a website that acts as an RSS aggregator. Web-based aggregators are relatively easy to set up and allow feeds to be read at any networked computer, PDA, or Web-enabled phone. Bloglines and the RSS module of MyYahoo! are two free providers.
RSS reader software, such as Pluck, SharpReader (both free Windows applications) and NetNewsWire (Mac), is more customizable and often includes the ability to alert you to new headlines or content.
Some web browsers, such as Opera, have an RSS reader built in. Others, such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, require extensions to add RSS features.
