When you subscribe to an RSS feed, the feed reader will check the website you subscribe to for new content. If there are any new articles, they will be displayed directly within your feed reader.

There are a number of different ways to read an RSS feed.  For instance in an up-to-date version of a browser like Firefox or Internet Explorer, in an email client, or using a special "RSS Feed Reader" that lets you manage a number of feeds together.
