Ok so this the latest beta and so far i have found it easy to use. it's the standard two pane browser with a file/list directory and the main viewing pane. it can synchronize rss feeds on start up highlighting the latest unread items. newzie is bright and stylish to look at with a host of useful features such as a scrolling ticker, pop up notifier customizable with sound file, news slideshow and postsweeper to get rid of the junk. i like the fact that selected posts open in the main viewer rather than externally in your internet browser. it may take a bit of getting used to but on the plus side it's from the same stable as the excellent ziepod and this release works well (apart from one glitch with the ticker - grrr). definitely one to watch even if it's not exactly your cup of tea at the moment.
A very good looking RSS atom news reader with lots of nice colorful extras. I like the ticker tape and the built-in web browser. Newzie performs automatic updates on subscribed RSS feeds during startup. I wonder if this version is still Beta. No real bugs but lots of imperfections. The overall file structure is rather complicated. It will take many users lots of time to fully understand the big idea behind this program. Nice but not too user friendly.
