Editors' Review

If the sight of a CNN news ticker makes your heart pitter-pattter, Newsplorer may be the RSS client for you. Once you've chosen news feeds from your favorite sites, it runs the headlines across your screen in a tickerlike interface. Mousing over a headline makes the ticker stop and display a small window so that you can read a brief summary--a feature we really appreciated. If you want to read more, just click the headline and the full story will open in your default Internet browser. Another nice touch is Newsplorer's Pause button, which makes a group of headlines stay on your screen. However, we did wish Newsplorer offered a standard two- or three-pane interface in addition to the ticker. Also, the configuration menu is a bit confusing, with colors that block out your selections when highlighted; we quickly made sense of it, though. Customizing your own feeds is as easy as choosing the category and adding an XML link from your favorite site. You even can download skins from the developer's home page. In the end, your liking for Newsplorer will probably depend on how much you enjoy getting your headlines from a scrolling ticker. Fans of the cable-news style will find this program a fine way to stay on top of the news.
