Free Browser Add-On Brings Your Favourite Web Articles and News to You!

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

A new free browser add-on from Electronic Technologies, Inc., brings new articles and headlines from your favourite sites to you!

RssToolbar from Electronic Technologies, Inc. (not to be confused with a toolbar of the same name from CastleCops) works by incorporating RSS technology into an easy-to-use free web browser plug-in which silently checks all of your favourite blogs, news, and other websites for any newly published articles, and then displays any new headlines in an unobtrusive bar along the top of your browser. If something looks interesting, just click on it to open the article in a browser window.


No more checking each of your favourite sites over and over just to see if they have published anything new! Now you can know at a glance if there is anything new there!

And it works with Internet Explorer and FireFox – Windows and Mac! Free!

Some of you may recall that we discussed the RssToolbar last month, and then quickly pulled the article. That is because a couple of particularly astute Internet Patrol readers downloaded the RssToolbar and then told us and Electronic Technologies that it was setting off their adware and spyware alarms.

Now we personally know the creator of RssToolbar, Chuck Eglinton, and know that he is a stand-up guy who would never put adware or spyware in anything he developed, but he quickly pulled RssToolbar out of production until they could figure out what was going on, and we pulled the article. It turned out that the compiler they had used to create the RssToolbar software was the same compiler that some bad guys had used to create some spyware, and so some of the anti-spyware programs detected the compiler’s “footprint”, and alarms went off.

RssToolbar has been reconfigured now, and is as safe as can be (and let me emphasize that it always was safe).

Explains Chuck, “Recently, an anti-spyware program mistakenly reported that RssToolbar included malware and adware. I’d like to thank Internet Patrol readers, John B. and Hubert W., who reported this problem and helped me eliminate the false alarm. RssToolbar does not include adware or malware of any kind.”

 

Of the RssToolbar capabilities, says Chuck, “RssToolbar provides a very fast and easy way to see the latest published works from your favorite web authors and your favorite websites. RssToolbar delivers fresh headlines directly to a small convenient toolbar in your Internet browser.”

So check it out! It’s free! It’s safe! And it’s wonderful! (I’m using it now!)
