What (free) newsgroup/Usenet reader do you use?

    Having taken up the newsdemon offer on here, I'm not happy with the NewsRover program they give you free. What do you use that you would recommend?


    by reader do you mean the index site to find the files you need?

    To download the headers/messages etc

    altbinz never let me down.

    Another vote for alt.binz here - don't download a pirated version though because they contain username/password stealers:…are!-You-have-been-comprimised

    I used to use grabit but there were a few annoying and limiting bugs and it rarely got updated.

    oh the software, yeh i use grabit, very noob friendly


    newsleecher (fact is the supersearch feature in newsleecher beats all web based nzb sites) definatly worth paying for!


    Assuming you just mean for binaries and not text..... altbinz gets my vote too.

    GrabIt does the job for me!
