News feed (or web feed) is a computer-readable data format for content updates. The most common feeds are RSS and Atom (RFC 4287).

Available software

Feed readers

Feed readers reside within the net-news category. To list them, run:

user $eix -cC net-news

Web browser support

Pale Moon has native support for feed autodiscovery and listing. Other browsers need a third-party extension for that functionality.

Web applications

Selfhosted news aggregation applications give such benefits as easy synchronization between devices or email notifications.
