RDF Site Summary (RSS) files, based on XML, provide an open method of syndicating and aggregating Web content.

A RSS Aggregator or News Reader enables you to quickly read and gather information from hundreds of web sites - without having to visit them. Don't waste any more time checking your favorite web sites for updates.

RSS Feeds are frequently marked with badges like this or just links marked "rss", "atom" or "syndicate".
