The Newwws

CNET Editors' review

Check the headlines of online news sources from your desktop with The Newwws, though you may wish it were easier to set up. It resides in the system tray and includes a news ticker and watcher with options to keep the first always on top. The program is preset to monitor Reuters and BBC headlines, and these scroll rapidly by on the ticker, though you can modify scroll speed. You can easily select sites you wish to add to the ticker or use the watcher to notify you if a site's content changes, as long as these sites are included in the program's preloaded options. You won't be able to access the program's editor, which allows you to add your own sites to monitor, from the system tray menu. You'll need to open it from the program's folder. Despite some complexities in setup, intermediate to advanced users will appreciate having the news readily available without surfing the Web.

    "Most powerful news and web content tool"

    September 12, 2004  |   By mosabt

    Version: The Newwws 1.4.2

    Summary

    I used this tool for almost a year now. I tried many tools that have rss and web-based content tickers before. This one is very powerful in functionality and most flexible compared to others. Its years ahead of other tools. Glad to see that finally they have it listed here which will make it easier for others to find. I use it to grab specific content that I monitor from message boards, business sites, my hotmail account, rss feeds, etc. The one thing that I think it can be improved upon would be better user interface for the ticker (making it prettier). Other than that, its awsome.
