NewsFeed is an RSS reader and aggregator that features minimal dependencies (it uses Python/Tk), a live search function, and audio notification when new items are available. It can be used with a mouseless interface; users can one cycle through new items with the Space key, mark items in a feed as read with m, and open an item in the browser by pressing o (or Return). Search results are shown in the feed list like a regular RSS feed and are updated live. Use "Unsubscribe" to delete a search, just as you would remove a feed.
