Easily see the latest headlines from a few of your favorite sites with this tray-based reader. FeedTray's simple interface is basically a pull-down menu from a tray icon. Installation is quick, and the short Help file will instruct the novices. Memory cost is slightly greater than Windows Explorer, but less than Firefox.
If you can hover and click the mouse, you can operate this program. Hovering your mouse over FeedTray's icon lists the number of unread articles for each subscribed feed. Clicking the icon opens the program's main menu listing each feed. Hover over a feed title to display current headlines. Bold headlines point to unread articles. Hovering over a headline immediately displays the article. Clicking some articles opened them in the default browser. We experienced occasional display problems as read articles didn't clear off the screen without closing the program. Some users might find that the menu pops open and close too quickly for accurate selection. Unfortunately, there is no option to control display speed.
Adding new feeds is quickly accomplished manually, but the program doesn't offer OPML import or feed autodiscovery. FeedTray's demo limits the number of articles per newsfeed, but the program performs well for an accurate test of functions. This program is recommended for any level user looking for an easy to access headline reader with quick article display.
FeedTray is a tiny news feed reader with a difference - it doesn't have a main window to clutter up your precious screen space with. Instead FeedTray appears as an icon in you Windows task tray and monitors your favourite newsfeeds and unobtrusively notifies you when new articles are posted. Clicking the icon brings up a live structured menu with the newsfeed already embedded in it. So you can decide whether or not to read the whole article.
