Description

If Y Combinator is your first and only stop for tech news or just a great way to keep up with the world of technology, Hacker Bar will keep you up to date.

Hacker Bar lives in the Mac menu bar and provides a steady stream of the top news stories from the Y Combinator news aggregator. Here are some of Hacker Bar’s great features.

Hacker Bar...

- Grabs the top stories from Y Combinator and seamlessly refreshes them every 5 minutes (or at a customized time interval).
- Puts a check mark beside each viewed story. Never again wonder if a link has been visited and use this feature to quickly jump back to any interesting article.
