Editors' review

This newsreader combines simplicity and power in an attractive package, but we encountered a couple of small drawbacks during testing.

YeahReader automatically installs, and requires minimal user input during setup, making it perfect for novices. Its interface isn't ostentatious, but the simplicity of its three-pane design means users aren't overwhelmed by a clutter of buttons and menu commands. While the help feature is limited, the program's look and feel promotes intuitive use.

The reader pane includes a Maximize/Minimize button appropriate for easily reading a full Web page of news. Adding (and removing) RSS and Atom feeds is quickly performed: simply supply a URL, and the program will detect the newsfeed link automatically. Only in one instance during our testing was the program unable to successfully link to a news site's feed. Our only other complaint rose from clicking a link to view a video feed: in launching the video, YeahReader overrode our default browser to open Internet Explorer.

The drawbacks are relatively minor, but potential users should consider them before deciding on this program. Despite its slight flaws, we recommend this free program to any level user wanting a very simple-to-use, powerful newsreader.
