MRC Latest Headlines


What is RSS?
RSS is a convenient way to get the news and information that matters most to you quickly and easily, without having to search all over the Web.

Using very simple, easy-to-use, free or low-cost software called an RSS reader, you can have all the latest headlines on topics you choose delivered to your desktop for free. You can even choose the source. When your reader displays a headline of interest, click the headline and you'll be whisked to the source Web site for the full story.

With RSS you no longer have to visit your favorite Web sites to check for new updates--you simply open up your reader and see all the headlines from all your selected sources in a matter of seconds.

Some web browsers, including Firefox, allow you to incorporate RSS feeds that will be downloaded and viewable through the browser. In the case of Firefox, they are called "Active Bookmarks." Internet Explorer users can download a plugin called RSSExplorer.
