Usenet Information


Your Usenet access software

The Usenet and therefore also the newsgroups are accessed with a newsreader (also called a client). This is similar in its usage to the well-known Internet browsers (e.g. Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) and therefore ensures simple navigation through the Usenet. In addition to the easy navigation offered, many newsreaders provide assistance systems which support the users in searching for content or unpacking and joining downloaded file segments.

NewsFile Grabber

The NewsFile Grabber newsreader is available with costs here. The software is probably more appealing to experienced users due to its range of complex settings. However, the latter also allows you to tailor the download job management tool exactly to your requirements. The interface clearly focuses on the features offered and is rather minimal in its design. To get the maximum out of the NewsFile Grabber, several configuration settings need to be changed. The wide-ranging technical documentation that comes with the software is a big help in this respect.

Here is an overview of the most important features of the NewsFile Grabber:

Operating systems supported:

There are, of course, substantial differences between how the individual newsreaders work. Before you opt for a specific newsreader, you should for instance check which operating system it is suitable for. The languages on offer may also be relevant for your choice.
