A news aggregator is a software that uses a web feed to retrieve syndicated web content such as weblogs, podcasts, vlogs, and media websites, or in the case of a search aggregator, a customized set of search results. You can quickly scan hundreds of the latest headlines from Web sites you’ve selected, instead of visiting those Web sites individually.

Aggregators provide a consolidated view of the content in a browser display or desktop application. Such applications are also referred to as RSS readers, feed readers, feed aggregators, news readers or search aggregators. The syndicated content that aggregators retrieve and interpret is usually supplied in the form of RSS

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, a way of keeping up with the latest content from your favorite Web sites or blogs. They reach you in the form of a headline, summary, and a link to the full-text article or feature.

You can choose an aggregator from the list here.
