Get yourself an RSS aggregator and use it to subscribe to the site's feed.

An RSS aggregator is a program that periodically downloads an RSS feed and displays the list of news items. There are any number of desktop and web-based aggergators available. Personally, I like Akregator because it integrates with Kontact. Some web browsers also have RSS support, like the "live bookmarks" feature in Firefox, or Opera's built-in feed reader.

Once you have an RSS aggregator, all you have to do is copy and paste the URL of the RSS feed into the aggregator's "new feed" dialog. That's it. The aggregator will download the feed and display the items.

First of all, thanks a lot for replying AdaHacker.

Actually i am using Fedora as an OS and as a web browser i am using firefox. You said that "live bookmarks " is an aggregator and is supported by firefox. OK.
Does "live bookmarks" is by default on firefox or do i have to download it and install it?
Sorry i am a new bee so my question seem's stupid may be!!

thanks again

Beats me. I've always used stand-alone aggregators. I think it's built in, but I don't actually use that feature, so I'm not positive.

The live bookmarks thing in Firefox is built-in. Not sure in which version it was introduced, though.

I think since 1.0 or maybe even before that. It seems like it always supported it.
