What is an RSS file?

An RSS file is a Rich Site Summary file saved in an XML-based syndication format. It contains news headlines and other web content along with metadata such as the author's name and the publish date. RSS files are used by many websites for distributing information that is often updated via RSS in an efficient, text-only format.
