Surfpack is an RSS reader that shows all content as a normal Web page inside Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera. The program comes equipped with 2000 RSS feeds grouped in World News, Sports, Home, Computers, High Tech and other categories. You can also use Surfpack web plug-ins to access your Hot Favorites groups, more than 100 popular and specialized search engines, your latest downloaded files, Check Later Links and auto-generated lists of the Most Popular and Regularly Visited Sites right from your home page. Surfpack automatically restores long URLs broken by e-mail clients and keeps your startpage URL from being hijacked by Trojans and spyware.
Feeds display options include a user-friendly newspaper-like format, news headlines with a short description displayed in the cursor hint and also full news texts. Since Surfpack resides locally on your computer (unlike many other web pages) it loads instantly, even if you don't have an Internet connection established and frees you from logins, corporate-sponsored content, and ads.
