RSS Reader Vista Gadget
RSS Reader Vista Gadget is a simple gadget that provides additional feeds to the RSS feeder integrated into the desktop.
It is very simple to install and set up even by users with limited or no experience in such software programs, as it comes packed with limited settings.
The interface of the application is based on a small frame that you can move to any location on the screen with the help of the mouse cursor.
Thanks to the Windows bult-in options, you can also make it stay on top of other windows, increase its size, as well as set its opacity level to a predefined value, ranging between 20% and 100%.
This way, RSS Reader Vista Gadget is not intrusive, and you can get a glimpse of the latest headlines while working in other applications with minimum effort.
Unfortunately, the widget does not provide functions for letting you specify your own news sources, but you can manage the ones shown on the panel, as well as choose the number of headlines to display.
The small tool is very light on the system resources, running on a minimum amount of CPU and RAM, so it doesn't affect the overall performance of the computer. It has a good response time and performs well, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation. All in all, RSS Reader Vista Gadget is a handy tool that brings you up to speed with the latest news headlines.
