Gnome RSS Newsfeed Applet?

I've been searching high and low for a RSS Newsfeed applet, I'd like one that scrolls like the Stock Ticker applet, this would rock and save alot of time TIA

This is not an answer to your question, but

1) For GNOME, there is Straw, which is not a ticker, but a normal windowing program.

2) If you wanted to write a ticker, you could probably reuse a lot of code from existing apps, like Straw.

3) Firefox 1.0PR supports live bookmarks, which may be more or less preferable than a ticker, depending on your habits.

There is also an extension that you can download for FireFox called Sage that is an RSS and ATOM feed aggregator. As far as I know it does not have scrolling but I could be wrong.
