Editors' review

With so much new medical news being released each day regarding conditions and new treatments, keeping up with the latest is tricky. This free utility helps you stay up to date with information from a variety of trusted online sources, but DocTray's registration process is confusing and didn't work well in our tests.

DocTray launches with a small icon in your system tray. Clicking it opens a list of medical news sites, including MebMD, MedicineNet.com, MedicalNewsToday.com, and peer-reviewed journals, such as Archives of Internal Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), and New England Journal of Medicine. In our tests, clicking a link opened a browser window quickly to the selected site and story.

While we liked the selection of sites DocTray offers, we ran into some problems during our tests. First, during installation, the setup program launched a browser window with a free registration request--responding resulted in a passcode being sent to our e-mail address. Although we were instructed to complete registration by entering the passcode at another site, the resulting blog site that opened had no section for entering the code or completing the registration. This lack of registration only became an issue for the few links that required the registration to perform correctly.

Second, clicking a link from DocTray's list opened a new browser window for each link, instead of opening a new tab in the current window. This methodology quickly cluttered our desktop. Further, DocTray opened links in Internet Explorer instead of our default browser.

Although these glitches were somewhat irritating, we liked the list of links and the ease of customizing DocTray to suit our needs.
