Editors' Review

Fans of tickertapes will like this feed reader, but it could use more than a few tweaks. Installing TickeRSS drops an icon on your toolbar and a headline ticker crawls at screen bottom. You better like that position, as it can't be moved. The headline text is large enough for most users, but the font and text size can't be changed. You also can't change the crawl speed. Don't look for help at the publisher's Web site unless you read Portuguese.

With all those issues, what does work with TickeRSS? It's really easy to add a feed. You merely drag a feed URL to the program's Multiple Sources dialog. The program's instruction promises to add feeds by dragging the URL to the ticker, but that crashed the ticker during our tests. There are a couple of twists to get rid of the default Yahoo news feed. And there's no option to delete the publisher's advertisement channel that places a headline every so often for an e-mail product. You can easily click a headline and immediately open the article, but Internet Explorer is the only browser option.

We also wished the headline crawl included some mention of the feed title. TickeRSS may be difficult to personalize, but it has features that could fit the needs of some ticker crawl fans.
