RSS File

RSS is a simple XML format popularized originally by Netscape to describe the content of web sites. Aggregators, metasites, and search systems developed tools for reading these files, which was far more illuminating and efficient than analyzing HTML pages. In response to these tools, publishers began to highlight their content using RSS.

The acceptance of RSS snowballed beyond Netscape's expectation as it became particularly popular with publishers of ephemeral content. They saw RSS less as the index to a static site and more as a snapshot of the fleeting contents of a dynamic news source. Even this perspective has been undermined by a more XML-oriented point of view.
