I'm in the process of moving to a G5 iMac. Which newsreader do you
guys use so I can keep posting?
MacSoup. (http://home.snafu.de/stk/macsoup/) Offline news reader; very
convenient since I'm not always connected to the net. The 'must-have'
feature that made it my choice was its graphical thread view, the tree
diagram. It catches the attention of just about everyone who sees it;
they always want to know what newsreader I'm using. (A few have been
disappointed when they find out that it's available for Mac only.)
Seconded. Downsides are that it is rather un-Maclike in its operation,
with little in the way of on-screen buttons. Learning the keyboard
shortcuts is a must.
Plus, it does not have, nor interface with OSX's, spell checker.
And it's a text based newsreader only, so binaries and HTML messages are
out of the question. But that shouldn't an issue, should it?
Oh yes, and it's time limited shareware, whereas MT-Newswatcher is
freeware, so you'll have to figure out if you can put up with its
shortcomings enough to warrent paying for it. As you may have noticed,
I did! :-)
