Editors' Review

RSS is like a drug for news junkies, allowing headlines, blog posts, and podcasts to be sent automatically to a computer's desktop every day. RSS Bandit is a freeware software program for subscribing, managing, and reading this flow of news.

It has many attractive features, allowing a user to merge news headlines from multiple sources onto a single page and organize articles based on keyword, read/unread status, and age. We liked the built-in tabbed browser that allows a user to read the full article and search for new newsfeeds without quitting the program. Adding newfeeds is a simple one-click action, and the software lets users customize frequency and display settings for each individual feed. Once those settings are chosen, the program updates automatically and can display alerts whenever a new headline is available.

We would have liked to see a more flexible search capability, and the internal browser could have used an address bar to make Web navigation a bit easier, but on the whole RSS Bandit is an attractive choice for Web news hounds.
