Newspaper View

Newspaper Customization

Lektora is completely integrated in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It also offers an intuitive user interface and highly polished aesthetic. You can now read your news in the Internet tool you use the most: your browser.

Reading feeds is made easy with Lektora, which presents feeds in a familiar journal approach, very similar to reading a newspaper. Less clicking, more efficient reading.

Lektora understands that your time is valuable. A news item that was not read yesterday is not likely to interest you today. Each time you refresh your feeds, Lektora presents you with only the latest news items, conveniently saving older news items in a daily archive that can be consulted at a later time.

Subscribing to RSS feeds is a breeze with Lektora which features support for automatiy discovering feeds, transparent subscription from XML buttons clicked in web pages and a built-in directory featuring hundreds of popular feeds arranged by category.

Lektora also offers a fast feed-wide search capability, highlighting search results in all corresponding feeds. Searches can be bookmarked, making it possible to filter your news to overcome information overload.

Is Lektora free?

Yes, Lektora is absolutely FREE to use. However, Lektora includes small contextual ads inside its newspaper.

We have decided to give a free version so that everyone can enjoy and share the Lektora experience. However, developing and supporting Lektora require a lot of work. Because nothing is free in this world your financial support is very important.

That's why we also offer an ad-free experience for a minimal 29,95$ USD. This small financial contribution will significantly help us continue improving Lektora.

Is Lektora free of spyware?

Lektora is 100% spyware free. We also respect your privacy. We do not collect any personal information and we are not in any way associated with spam.

We are a serious software company and we do not want to lose our credibility.

What browsers are supported?

On Windows, Lektora requires Firefox 1.5 or Internet Explorer 6. On MacOS X and Linux, it requires Firefox 1.5.

Currently, Lektora does not support IE-derived browsers such as Maxthon, AvantBrowser, etc.
