What does it mean to me?

RSS or Real Simple Syndication is a technology used to provide readers with the latest news headlines. Making the Department of Electrial and Computer Engineering's news headlines RSS-enabled means that you can quickly browse, select, and subscribe to the college news you want to read.

How do I use it?

Firefox Download Page

If you're using Firefox, Internet Explorer 7, Safari or any web standard compliant browser that supports RSS feeds, you can click on the RSS feed button and view the RSS feed for that page.

Internet Explorer 7

RSS is not supported by Internet Explorer 6 so you will need to install a web standard compliant browser like Firefox or newer versions of Internet Explorer. Apple's browser, Safari, also supports the use of RSS feeds and is now available for Windows PC's.

Safari Download Page

Firefox will give you the best web browsing experience on the web, it's secure (no spyware/adware will automatically install when you visit webpages), webpages will look better, and it's customizable.

You can also view the RSS feed in your RSS aggregator by copying and pasting the link into your aggregator.
