A few missing features render WebFlash merely good, not great. We appreciate the idea here, as well as quick access from the tray icon and the program's modest appetite for memory. However, we'd like the ability to delete multiple sites from our watch list simultaneously, and the lack of support for scrolling is an unfortunate omission for a program built around Web pages. It would also be nice to get updates during the screensaver session rather than on launch only. WebFlash will do the trick for Web users who only need short and sweet online updates.

This Web screensaver makes it very easy to keep up to date with all your favorite Web sites: blogs, news, weather, stock prices, sports results, whatever takes your fancy. No longer will you have to remember to visit your favorite sites; WebFlash brings them to you, just like an online news screensaver and a blog viewer. Whenever the screensaver is activated, your favorite pages will pop up on your screen, with no action required on your part. Take a break to make coffee, answer the phone, or feed the cat, and you'll come back to see the current version of your favorite pages automatically updated.
