#2 and #3 — Newsleecher


Newsleecher Overview

NewsLeecher is a tool made for fetching and managing articles from the Usenet. It downloads Usenet articles in a snap, and uses its inline engine to assemble and decode the downloads. The powerful feature set and state-of-the-art user interface makes it an application "you simply can't live without" if you are a serious Usenet user. The current releases of NewsLeecher are mainly made for the downloading of binary files, but the company is working hard on extending NewsLeecher with full-blown text reader capabilities.
