Default Best Newsgroups reader

sponsored links
I'm getting annoyed with kazaalite (too many fake downloads) now and am thinking of converting to newsgroups- Which newsgroups reader does everyone use?

I heard xnews was pretty good- I've never used newsgroups before so would like a fairly basic one (at least to start with) are there any other programs other than a decent newsgroups reader and win rar that i also need?

M8 you might be in for a treat. Newsgroups aren't point, click, and d/l like Kazza. Anyway I use forte agent, there's a free version, and a pro version. It's the eastiest one I've found. [url]***********[/url]

You will need winrar or decent rar software (I use winrar), and make sure your Isp has newsgroups. Some of the "family friendly" ones don't......

xnews is good, or if your news server supports multiple connections I highly recommend powergrab.

I used to use xnews all the time with my old single connection server, when I moved servers and found a multiple connection server I hunted a round for a decent multiple connection client and found powergrab, and now I wouldnt use anything else. Great software and liek xnews is freeware
