• It displays multi-part articles (i.e. files) as one article for easy browsing.
• It downloads all the articles, and decode them automatically into one file.
• It is 100% Cocoa application (No java, perl...).
• It is lighter and faster than any other binary news reader available on OSX. It is perfeclty fitted for heavy-loaded alt.binaries.* newsgroups that hold hundreds of thousands of articles (i.e. thousands of files).
