What is SlashDock for Mac

SlashDock is a dockling that fetches and updates headlines for the lastest postings on slashdot-compatible sites and RSS-compatible sites (aka RDF) like Kuro5hin.org. Updates are obtained every 30 minutes, if new articles are available, the dock icon will flash with an image representing the article 'topic'. Selecting an article from the dockling menu will take you directly to that article in your preferred Web browser.

What is the developer going to do for those of us on Snow Leopard? Just like my previous post before SlashDock went universal, the icon is back to just opening and sitting there doing nothing, Any updates planned?

I love this app, but since I now am using an Intel iMac, Slashdock opens and just sits there. I hope a universal version is in the making. I miss Slashdock!

I wish more apps would utilize the app's dock menu like this one elegantly does. The only questionable part of SlashDock is the way sometimes seems inconsistent in the way it flags headlines, with regard to the combination of read/unread status and pulled/unpulled status.

This app is one of the VERY few I have downloaded (out of thousands) that remains a must have for me. I use it over the highly regarded netnewswire lite as it is smaller, less obtrusive and has all of the functionality I need. The PERFECT newsreader for me.

Who the heck would want updates from a crummy site like Slashdot?

Wow! This (v. 2.3.4...not 2.3.3) is THE RSS newsreader for me (and has been for some time). Unobtrusive, efficient and to the point. I LOVE this app!

One of the best Freeware apps for the Mac on the web today. The improved stability makes SlashDock a perfect 5 (stars). I use this dockling constantly throughout the day to keep abreast of OSX and general technology news. I'm addicted. If you are new to OSX and need to learn as much as you can about it from the various sites across the web, SlashDock will be pivotal to making your searching/learning more productive. Great work! p.s.- I don't know this guy, and I'm not a friend of his trying to convince you to DL his app. I just really like it.
