What is RSS?
HughesClan now has live RSS feeds! RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and allows
you to "subscribe" to different channels. The RSS feeds are updated at certain intervals
so the data you receive is always current. For example, many news websites
allow you to subscribe to RSS feeds that provide you with the latest current headlines.
Here at HughesClan, we provide channels that list the top games in each category so you
can quickly play the newest and most exciting games.
To subscribe to the
RSS channels, you must have RSS software such as Mozilla Firefox, a free web browser
that supports RSS feeds as Live Bookmarks. It also has great advanced browsing features
such as pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, and better security than Internet Explorer.
