How it Works

A feed subscription functions much like a magazine subscription; once you subscribe you will automatically receive the latest updates.  The presence of a feed icon indicates that feeds are available on a website. clip_image002.gif In order to subscribe to a feed, you can either click on the Add10-21-2010-2-12-05-pm button from the Alesti Web site,  then add the URL of the website that offers a feed – or add the Subscribe with Alesti bookmarklet alestibutton to your Web browser.
