RSS Feeds

 

What is RSS?


RSS is short for "Really Simple Syndication" -- that is the most popular definition. You may see it defined elsewhere as "RDF Site Summary" or "Rich Site Summary". Websites using RSS systems place content into a standardized format that is recognized by RSS readers. Modern browsers typically include RSS readers, otherwise you can find software online and downloadable for free. Subscribing to a City of Toronto RSS news feed lets you read City content as it is published or on other websites with real-time updates.
