FeedTree Web Proxy for Mac

Developer's Description

FeedTree is a peer-to-peer application that brings Web feeds to your desktop faster. FeedTree users work together to share news as soon as it is available; news arrives immediately, instead of on a polling schedule, making RSS as instantaneous as e-mail.

The FeedTree Web Proxy runs on your Mac alongside your favorite feed reading application. Your feed reader then talks to the proxy instead of the Internet, so it gets the latest news without polling the server.

FeedTree is a research project from the Rice University Department of Computer Science. For more information, see the website for the FeedTree project at feedtree.net.
