Rich Site Summary

(networking)
(RSS) A family of document types (generally based on RDF) for listing updates to a site. RSS documents (generally called "RSS feeds") are readable with RSS readers (generally called "aggregators") like BottomFeeder, although, in 2003, it is anticipated that aggregator functions will be incorporated into web browsers and/or NNTP newsreaders.
