Editors' Review

If you don't want to spend a lot of time checking your RSS news reader for updated feeds, you can do it on the fly with this app, which places a headline ticker at the top of the currently active window in addition to offering the standard reader.

Titlebar Ticker places a relatively unobtrusive bar at the top of your active windows frame that clearly indicates when fresh content arrives. We liked how moving the mouse over the ticker bar opened a second tier with the news source name, navigation arrows to move to another news feed, and an icon for opening a drop-down list of all the headlines from the current feed. Titlebar Ticker also adds an RSS icon in the system tray. Right-clicking the RSS icon allowed us to customize a number of options, including having the app play a tone when a feed updates. Left-clicking the RSS icon opened a three-paned window, similar to the familiar e-mail-client interface for listing the feed sources, headlines, and Web links.

We found it curious that launching a link from the ticker bar opened the story in our default browser (Firefox), but launching one from the larger three-paned interface opened the story in Internet Explorer. That mystery aside, we recommend this app for its handy dual approach to reading feeds.
