subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications
let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you

web-based service like Hotmail.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to
decide what content you want it to receive. For example, if you

If you click this button you can subscribe to the feed in
various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your
news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed
in your news reader.
