  • Generic Company Place Holder Newsleecher

Thankfully, version 3.8 fixes that with commands to download the last one, 100, ten thousand, etc. (no, there's no even one thousand) headers and I'm now finally considering retiring the competent-but-sometimes-buggy Xnews. Also swaying me are some great usability features Xnews lacks. Newsleecher displays message headers as only the names of files attached--which makes them much easier to peruse. There's an integrated file explorer. Related posts can be auto-selected, and you can organize newsgroups by category. There's also a Super Search service that performs ultra fast searches for articles of interest, though it's $10 extra per year. (The pricing on this page reflects the standard package.)
