ForumPilot automatically grabs new posts from on-line message boards and allows you to read them using a unified user interface, very similar to your normal e-mail client.

If you are a regular forum sites visitor, ForumPilot can save you a lot of time. You don't have to open your browser and navigate to discussion threads of interest. You simply subscribe to the forums you like and receive new posts right to your desktop.

All the downloaded posts are stored in a database and are indexed for fast full-text searches.

Exactly as in your e-mail client, posts are marked as read when you look at them.

ForumPilot also manages your account info. You don't have to remember your login info for all the forum sites you visit. Nor do you need to enter your login info manually every time.

ForumPilot includes a handy editor that allows you to easily format and post your messages. Unlike JavaScript-based post editors on web sites, ForumPilot's message editor is fast, reliable and works as a normal Windows rich-text editor.

Currently, ForumPilot supports the 5 most popular forum engines: vBulletin, phpBB, Invision Power Board, Ikonboard and Simple Machines Forum.
