Editors' reviewThis 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.
The MultiRSSFeed widget is for use with the Yahoo Widget Engine.
