Developer's Description

If Y Combinator is your first and only stop for tech news or just a great way to keep up with the world of technology, Hacker Bar will keep you up to date.

Hacker Bar lives in the Mac menu bar and provides a steady stream of the top news stories from the Y Combinator news aggregator. Here are some of Hacker Bar's great features.

Hacker Bar...

- Grabs the top stories from Y Combinator and seamlessly refreshes them every 5 minutes (or at a customized time interval).
- Puts a check mark beside each viewed story. Never again wonder if a link has been visited and use this feature to quickly jump back to any interesting article.
- Allows multiple stories to open in a new tab by group linking articles. If the web browser is open and the active application, stories will open in the background without closing the Hacker Bar menu.
- Gives easy access to comments with a click of the comment count bubble. Here, registered users can up-vote articles and get flame wars started even faster!
- Can be set to auto start on login, never missing another great Y Combinator story!

Hacker Bar will keep every person interested in the tech world hooked into the news from Y Combinator in seamless simplicity. Download the App today to quickly and discretely check Hacker News.
