How to read the CERN RSS feeds from Linux
We will use the cern.market 'web discussion forum' as an example for various RSS readers.
Firefox has an incorporated RSS reader, via the so-called "Live Bookmarks" feature (you can read more about this at MozillaZine).
In order to add a Live Bookmark for cern.market, visit https://cern.ch/cern.market, click on "RSS Feed" and log in via your CERN (or "external") account.
ThunderbirdThunderbird can be used to view RSS feeds within mail folders interface.

Note: For cern.market: Use a web browser to open the cern.market web page: Right-click on the "RSS Feed" link at the left, select "Copy Link location".
