Editors' review

An easy way to keep up with the latest news, My RSS Toolbar is aimed at people who don't want to go through the bother of installing and configuring a full-blown newsreader. It comes in the form of an Internet Explorer add-on, and compiles feeds from sources including Yahoo News, News.com, the BBC, and others onto a single page. Users can choose to see headlines or headlines with abstracts, in about 20 news categories. However, the software does not allow users to add new feeds or news sources, a limitation that sharply limits its range. For those who don't need to go beyond standard newsfeeds, this may be enough, but anyone who wants to fully explore the world of RSS-enabled blogs should look for a full-featured RSS reader.

    "Freezes in the end of the installation"

    August 17, 2005   |   By Raga

    Version: My RSS Toolbar 1.30

    Pros

    I'm sure it'd be a fine product if I got it installed. As far as I can tell, it doesn't come with spyware, which is a good thing.

    Cons

    I get as far as "Registering Files", right at the end of the installation, and there the program just hangs. Then you have to go and kill it from Task Manager. Then, as I try to uninstall, I get an error message of a corrupt dat file (presumably due to the interrupted setup) and the uninstall fails.
