The application can be run in stand-alone mode, or within a web browser. Running the app in a web browser provides the advantage that when you click on a feed item, the full article will be loaded into a new browser window. Jeff provides large snippets of the code that performs the key functions for the app, and talks about what the individual sections do, and why certain elements that might appear surprising had to be that way.
