Use Google News
Google has this RSS reader, which appears to be available for a number of platforms, e.g. the Chrome browser, Android or iOS.
Mozilla Firefox has a very nice feature: Live Bookmarks. With Live Bookmarks you can see the item titles of an RSS web feed ("headlines") in your bookmarks. This way you can stay in touch with sites without visiting them all the time.
Subscribing to an RSS web feed is as simple as creating a Live Bookmark. And to make life even easier Firefox can auto detect some feeds, and provide a shortcut for subscribing.
When you visit a site and you see the orange icon in the bottom right part of the Mozilla Firefox browser window (the status bar), or if you are using version 1.5 or newer, in the right most part of the address bar.
Otherwise just go to our RSS page and it should ask you to Subscribe.
The are also several RSS add-ons for Firefox, the two most popular being
- Brief - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/brief/
- Sage - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sage/
Internet Explorer 7 and 8
When you visit our website, the Feeds button will change color, letting you know that feeds are available. Click the Feeds button, and then click the feed you want to see.
IE has a built-in News Reader. You view feeds on the Feeds tab in the Favorites Center. To view your feeds in Internet Explorer 8, click the Favorites button, and then click Feeds. In Internet Explorer 7, click the Favorites Center button, and then click Feeds.
Internet Explorer provides the Common Feed List to other programs. This allows you to subscribe to feeds with Internet Explorer and read them in other programs, such as e‑mail clients, or the Windows Sidebar. The Windows Live Mail email client is one of these and people say that it provides a much better experience than reading the feed directly in Internet Explorer.
