Using RSS feeds

Safari RSS for Mac OS X Tiger lets you keep up with breaking news, thanks to a handy RSS icon which notifies you if RSS feeds are available. Safari displays the feed once you have clicked on the icon. Safari in addition informs you when your bookmarked feeds are updated with new articles, so you get the latest news without repeatedly refreshing the page.

To access RSS Feeds your Safari browser needs to be RSS enabled.
