What is a news reader?

RSS news feeds can be read with a web-based news reader, or with dedicated news reader software.

Web-based news readers typically require users to register and subscribe to the particular feeds they are interested in. For assistance with the registration and subscription process, users should refer to the support information available on the web-based news reader sites. Lists of web-based news readers are available online, for example here and here (external links).

Dedicated news reader software requires installation on a user’s computer. For assistance, users should refer to the documentation available for the software. Lists of news reader software packages are available online, for example here and here (external links).
