My bad.. was confusing it with another rss reader that has a similar interface. For whatever reason the other rss reader called the viewing pane a widget window. I guess it was a multi-functional area for that app.
Basically, Newzie seems to be using it's internal browser to display the rss article. Trying to avoid that. That seems to be what most rss applications do.
That was the beauty of Klipfolio rss, it just lists the headers of the rss page and when you hover over it, it shows you the first few sentences or paragraph and if you are still interested, click on it the header and then it launches in whatever browser you have open or associated.
There is something similar.. Snakr (snackr.net) but it runs on Adobe Air... makes me shudder. I avoid Adobe plugins, causes more security holes than anything out there.
