Gossip is a little program which can be used to keep abreast of the latest postings on any Internet site which supports a news backend file. Gossip is capable of interpreting the contents of both RSS (Resource Description Framework (RDF) Site Summary) and three-line simple text news backend files. Gossip will fetch the contents of the news backend file for all the sites you've defined, display the headlines in a tree structure and launch your browser with the appropriate url when you double-click the appropriate headline.
Unlike most other programs which monitor the news sites constantly for changes, Gossip currently does no monitoring at all. It will fetch the headlines when you ask it to update them but otherwise will remain inactive. This might change in the future depending on user feedback.
