Preset, or custom news sourcesThe application is good to go as soon as setup is done, but before you can enjoy all it has to offer itís best to make sure that .NET Framework is also found on the target computer, because itís a mandatory requirement for functionality. On the other hand, itís usually a default Windows feature, so chances are itís already on your computer.Chances are you donít even need to make any further adjustments, at least as far as sources are concerned.

Visual design, and update frequencyWhen not used, the application can be hidden to the tray area, and easily brought up to view any updates. Upon mouse hover, a website thumbnail appears, while a single click sends you to that specific page via your default web browser. The feed window is not resizable, but enough to hold the latest five entries, and dedicated navigation controls.Updates are configured by default to grab new headers on a daily basis. This can be set to twice a day, or manually. Itís possible to connect through a proxy server for more security. Just to keep you updated as soon as you reach the desktop, the application takes the liberty of adding itself to the list of startup items.
