Editors' review

This easy-to-use RSS reader widget lets you view the latest feeds from any Web site you specify, but it can clutter your desktop if you want multiple feeds. MultiRSSFeed offers a miniature interface and can display a maximum of 10 headlines. It can display feeds from up to five RSS sources. Moving your cursor over a headline will prompt the widget to scroll the story's first paragraph of text. To view the whole story, click a headline and it will automatically open the story in your browser. To receive RSS feeds, you just copy an URL and paste it in the preferences section of the widget. However, each new feed creates a separate widget window on your desktop, which can lead to crowding if you want multiple news sources. This widget automatically updates the displays according to user-defined intervals. Anyone who wants a simple RSS reader will appreciate this freeware; however, anyone who wants multiple feeds will want to try a reader with more features that won't clutter their desktop.

    "Easy To Use RSS News Reader"

    August 07, 2006   |   By Lazulite

    Version: MultiRSSFeed widget 2.2

    Pros

    1)Simple, no frills RSS reader, must-have for widget lovers.

    2)Easy-to-use, offers a tiny interface which can be placed anywhere on your screen and can display a maximum of 10 headlines.

    3)By placing your cursor on a headline, you may be able to read the first couple of lines of the story.

    Cons

    1)Your desktop would definetely scream at you if it had the chance, because each new feed creates a separate window in case you want to read multiple feeds.

    2)Although the scrolling effect is nice when you place the mouse over a headline, you also get plenty of html that nobody cares for.

    3)Although you can chose fonts up to size 13, the only useful font you can really use is a 9, since it is the only one that will fit enough words to read the headline of a story.

    4)It really is very basic, and expert RSS feed users of other programmes may end up finding it a nuisance.
