NewzCrawler is an application that allows users to have access to syndicated news, web pages, and Usenet newsgroups. It is a browser, news aggregator, and atom/RSS reader. The application collects news content from various source channels and displays them in different ways, depending on the user’s preferences. News content can be viewed as a news ticker, news balloon, or as a news list. The program’s main interface is similar to that of Microsoft Outlook Express’ windows. One of the main features of this application is that it allows users to get news from web pages, news groups, Atom, and RSS all in one location.
On the main interface, a tree view of channels is located at the left panel. There are also tabs for the Channel List and Smart Folders. When a folder or file is selected, it is then displayed on the upper right portion of the window. The bottom right portion shows the integrated browser where users can access websites. The program also comes with a wide variety of options and settings for the connections, user information, appearance, and enclosures. With this program, users can search for news based on keywords and share news to contacts through email.
