Here’s yet another RSS utility. The developers say:
Our unique desktop application manages your priority content and delivers continuous updates. Right to your desktop.
Receive the information you want, when you want it and how you want it.
Assign a unique graphic to each update and select the alert level
that’s right – all with just a few simple mouse clicks.
I haven’t tried it – I’m a Netvibes devotee – but Blerts looks like it would be just fine.
