Iíve been using Gush recently as my news reader. And it really is the works! The interface is a treat to look at, and very easy to use and read. The killer-feature about Gush, however, is the news reader is complimented with a Jabber IM client. Unfortunately I donít know anyone using Jabber so I canít make the most of it. But this is a really interesting marriage, allowing the sharing of news feeds amongst many other things.

Update #1: Just found out that Gush comes with an MSN gateway which means I can now talk to all my MSN buddies. It offers a very nice iChat style two-column interface when chatting as well.

Update #2
: Unfortunately Gush is proving to be a bit of a resource hog and therefore slightly clunky. It’s based on Flash – not sure if this is the reason though.

  1. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the kind words. We are making some drastic memory improvements for our next release, and yes you’re right it is mainly due to the flash interface.

    Also just to let you know, the two column chatting has a number of features you won’t find in any other IM client, http://www.2entwine.com/features/splitchat.html

    Cheers,
