After using this for a few weeks I decided to stop. The reason is very simple - even when the Dashboard was not in use, ITK was using up nearly as much memory as Firefox! There are also a number of other quibles I had with the application, such as the lack of OPML support, the inability to lauch links in the background (I have to re-start Dashboard for every link I want to open - and then click to find the next "read more" link, etc. The software also seems to default to checking feeds far more often than the once per hour that is the norm for most sites.

I could really use something to check a couple of frequently used feeds without having to fire up NetNews Wire, but ITK isn't it ...

Great little RSS widget, I tried the rest and kept coming back to "In The Know".

Developer is quick to respond and helpful, I've already registered the Pro version.

Great Little Widget. I only having one problem, and that is that I can't figure out how to add a feed. Other than that, it's simply amazing.

Ok I figured it out. You must go to the RSS site, and drag the feed into dashboard. Quite Simple :-) Very very good widget.
