Nice work.

I love the animation.

Just a few thoughts:

- Maybe add a triangle to each item to collapse/mark the item read in case the user doesn't want to read the news item.
- Autoscroll feature.
- As much as I like the copy/paste feature I'm sure some won't so, give a look into Thomassen's text box and create a pop up input box for adding the feed.

Just my two cents

This is excellent.
This should be a Featured skin.
Very well done.

yes a very good newsreader widget.

suggestions - give it a url store so its easier to just select an rss url previously entered.

scrolling a headline on mouse over .. is that possible on this widget ? ..

option to have the rss icon displayed all the time

I love this.
I just can't figure out right now how to make them run muliple times just like the screenshot. Anyone?
Also just a suggestion if possible: Transparency and color changeabitly. I think it would be nice to have different colors for different headlines or color of your taste. That's just my taste.
The interface right now is really cool, especially for dark themes too. Some use light themes and prefer light interfaces. Just a thought. Thanks alot !

Hi Lan,

The screenshot is a bit Photoshop trickery to demonstrate its features, it cannot be run more than once as explained here.

I'm currently working on transparency but it’s a bit tricky as it hosts an IE control for HTML rendering. Then I can introduce colour control.
