Most popular news in March: Edge - top hacked browser, how to become super memorizer, magic helicopters and more AfterDawn has operated a news aggregator service called HIGH.FI since 2014. Service has grown steadily, month after month, during these past 3 years and in March, it - once again - made a new record with users clicking on more than 1.6 million headlines through it.
As we gather news from thousands and thousands of news services, the statistics the service generates are sometimes extremely interesting. We thought you might ant to take a look at what people clicked on during March and compiled a top20 list of headlines.

These headlines get read through our website, our Android news app and our Windows Phone app as well as through several 3rd party projects that use our news aggregator API.

Anyway, here are the charts...
