Netcaster

Netcaster, a component of Netscape's Communicator (which includes the Netscape Navigator browser ), allows a Web user to make preselected Web sites an integral part of the personal computer desktop and to have them automatically updated. Called channel and similar to the channels on Microsoft's Windows desktops, the Netcaster channels include: CNET, CNN, Gartner, and Airius News. A user can request customized news and content updates on a preset schedule. Using push technology (sometimes referred to as Webcasting or netcasting ), the updating occurs in the background while other computer work is going on and is then available when you want to read the updates. (You can read the updates offline.)
