Blerts, the graphical RSS feed reader

screenshot of Blerts

So much news, so little time. If you're really plugged-in, you probably spend a fair amount of time trying to keep up with the latest, whether it's the latest news and politics, the latest tech updates, or just the latest on your favorite blog. You can spend a lot of time checking back to these sites multiple times a day, or you can let their updates come to you via RSS feeds.

Blerts is a cute little feed reader that sits in your System Tray and waits for interesting things to happen. Pop it up to read the latest and greatest from the sites you're monitoring. View just the headlines, or drill down to look at the full text. It's easy to add new channels to keep track of even more of what's going on out there.

Blerts is a free download. It's a Windows app and will run under Windows 2000 and later. It requires a web browser, and supports IE 6+ or Firefox 1.5+.
