    I used to use PicoNews and like the interface and everything, but then I tried Viigo and I think it's phenomenally better. There's plenty of feeds in the built-in catalog, and it's a snap to add new ones. And overall and very good interface, and feel. I especially like the feature of pictures being shown in the articles without having to open a link.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rss

    RSS is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.
    RSS content can be read using software called a "feed reader" or an "aggregator." The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.
