What is XML and RSS Feed ?
RSS or Really Simple Syndication is a family of web feed formats. RSS is mainly used to publish frequently updated works. RSS feeds are very helpful for blogs, news headlines which updates very frequently. RSS feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate or synchronize contents automatically.
The first version of RSS, was created by Dan Libby and Ramanathan V Guha at Netscape. It was released in march 1999 for the use on the My.Netscape.com portal. This version was famously known as RSS 0.9. As the time went on new versions started to flow through.
A standard XML file format allows the information or contents to get published once and get viewed by many different programs. This benefits the users or readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from the website or web pages or even from their favorite blogs. This also helps users or readers to aggregate feeds from several sites or many sites into a single or one place.
