RSS feeds are the all the rage on the Internet right now. This is a great way to get the news delivered right to your desktop in real-time and without you having to visit any web site. Practically every major news source today offers RSS feeds for you to tap into absolutely free of charge! Simply select the news sites you like most and cancel your newspaper subscription! I’m just kidding. I know it is good to read a real newspaper while drinking a morning coffee.
One neat RSS module feature is that you can minimize it after reading, and it will expand automatically when new headlines arrive. In addition, reading the output of a RSS module on your Startpage has the “feel” of a real newspaper. It has a special two-column layout designed to fit your screen and make news easier to read. To see an example of RSS text layout you can preview a live sample of our “Gizmodo blog” displayed in a Surfpack homepage. (Hint: Use your mouse wheel or up/down arrow keys to “turn over” the pages.).
