NetNewsWire is a simple yet very helpful program designed for Mac users who wish to keep track of the latest news without using their default browser. The application is very easy to handle, allows you to select multiple news websites for monitoring, and lets you share your favorite articles via Facebook or Twitter account directly from the NetNewsWire's interface.

After you enter the URLs for the websites you wish to follow, the app immediately displays the most recent news, nicely organized into groups (a different group for each webpage). You can bookmark articles, share them with your friends, mark stories as read, and much more.

Another good aspect about this RSS reader is the fact that it also provides you with an integrated browser. By using this built-in utility you can read the entire article directly from its source, without using your default browser.

Furthermore, the application also features a comprehensive help guide that teaches you how to handle the program's functions, add webpages for monitoring, and much more.

In conclusion, NetNewsWire proves to be a reliable solution for monitoring and reading the latest news. The application provides you with an intuitive interface, offers you plenty of useful features, and comes with an adequate price.
