About RSS feeds & readers

Use an RSS feed reader if you'd like to be alerted to new content that has been added to a webpage. The reader can combine feeds from various pages or websites that have been subscribed to and presents them as a series of headlines.

Not all web pages are RSS enabled; usually an RSS icon is used to indicate a feed is available.

There are various types of feed readers.

Web browsers

Many web browsers including Internet Explorer and Firefox allow you to subscribe to RSS and other web feeds.

Smartphone & tablet apps

There are many RSS reader apps available. Some examples are Feedly, digg, FeedlerRSS, MobileRSS and G-Whizz.

Please note the applications listed here are suggestions only; the Federal Court does not endorse any particular application.
