WebTicker is an Internet application that automatically retrieves text content from Web sites of your choice and displays it in a movable resizable ticker that scrolls across your PC's screen. New version works over LAN, proxy server, high-speed or dial-up networking connections. Get breaking news from your intranet server or any Web site in the world! Controlled by a tray icon popup menu, you set the sites and retrieval intervals. Updating WebTicker's URL file with new sites is effortless, and the registered version allows you to retrieve from three different sites on a rotating basis. A configuration dialog allows settings for auto-retrieval interval, scroll speed, browser and viewer, Web site URLs, auto-timeout, and a site tester for experimental retrieval of URLs.
