Editors' review

While there's nothing stylish about this newsfeed aggregator, it gets the job done. This application builds a home page with headline links to online news sources you select from a preloaded list or by manually adding them.

Aardvark Homepage Creator's interface is boxy and unpolished, almost in the realm of antidesign (or, in a forgiving mood, we might call it digital folk art). The home page it produces is similarly unadorned with just a window that includes text-link headlines and the title of their respective sources. The preloaded sources are all from the United Kingdom, but selecting and adding news sources is easy to do.

The application responded quickly each time we clicked a new link, but the home page refreshed very slowly, even though it carried only text and no graphics. We found that the application only worked with IE and we had to enable the "allow active content to run in files on My Computer" option before it would function properly.

If content is more important to you than stylishness, this news aggregator may be just for you. But for experienced users accustomed to more bells and whistles, this application doesn't make the grade.
