NewsBar 2.4 – Fast-updating Desktop RSS News Reader.

NewsBar is built with a fresh concept: news feeds delivered with a smooth animation, right to your desktop. All of your RSS feeds continuously appear on the selected side of your display, or in a regular window. NewsBar is like having your own, personal news agency. You don’t have to waste your time checking webpages – NewsBar will show you what’s going on.

No delays, no waiting: stories appear right on your display, just as they are published. You can easily Read, Follow, Mark, Filter, and Search news from your favorite feeds. Stories are read directly from RSS sources without delay, with the ability to check for new items as often as every minute. NewsBar is probably the fastest RSS reader in the world.
