What the Heck Does RSS Mean?

I wish the acronym “RSS” had never been invented. It’s confusing, hard to describe and something everyone wants to understand. I much prefer the term “news feed” for this technology that helps you get blog and podcast updates on your computer.

Nevertheless, I was glad to see that Unclutterer wrote up a handy primer on the term. It’s still a bit jargon (they use the term “content” a little too freely. Think of “content” as the stuff on your website, such as articles and listings), but still helpful.
