What's with the jet theme?
When designing Benzinga Pro, we were constantly thinking about speed. We wanted to create the fastest real time news feed possible. Thus, when it came time to design the layout for the website, we asked ourselves, "Is there anything as fast as Benzinga Pro?" Jets, which move at supersonic speed, immediately came to mind as the perfect way to demonstrate the speed of Benzinga Pro.
What does Benzinga mean?
In the 1800s, men used to gather at a small town in America to play a game where numbers were drawn randomly and matched to a series of numbers printed on square cards. Whenever the random numbers matched those that were printed on the cards, the men would stand up and shout, "Benzinga!" Their excitement was insurmountable. In designing our site, we were equally excited, and thought that using the Benzinga name was the perfect way to illustrate our feelings.
Nothing happens I click on the "Launch Newsfeed" icon, but I keep getting a "blocked pop-up" message. How come?
Your pop-ups are turned off. Make sure that they are turned on while accessing Benzinga Pro or the newsfeed will not launch.
Alternatively, you can adjust your pop-up settings to allow the newsfeed to launch even while pop-ups are turned off. Also, many browsers will alert you when a pop-up has been blocked, allowing you to enable Benzinga Pro without adjusting the rest of your browser settings.
How do I increase or decrease the amount of details provided in the newsfeed?
On the top right corner of the screen you will see a white slider tool. Drag it left to reduce the amount of details; drag it right to increase the details.
I like the shortened details that the newsfeed provides, but how do I get the whole story?
Double-click on the story (anywhere on the screen) to reveal the full story.
