The Usenet client options for Mac have been fairly sparse since the Panic team decided to discontinue development of Unison in 2014. You still have apps like Newshosting that are maintained by Usenet providers but very few choices for those who want to connect to multiple Usenet services. Usenetic 1.2.0 - Usenet client with MegaSearch. Download the latest versions of the best Mac apps at safe and trusted MacUpdate Download, install, or update Usenetic for Mac from MacUpdate. This allows Unison to commit themselves fully to Mac OS X. So it comes in especially handy to all frequent Mac users. Grabit – Easy to use Newsreader Grabit is another free Usenet newsreader, which comes with all the basic features you need including an efficient search function. 600 GB Free Download Volume Up to 15 GB with Maximum.

I know about Unison. Are there any decent free usenet readers for Mac OS X Leopard?

Mozilla Thunderbird does a decent job with usenet.

Torrent Client For Mac

You can get the standard *nix ones via Fink or MacPorts. I'm partial to slrn, but that's a console app. If you prefer a gui, there's Pan. I've used it on Linux, and it was good. I can't speak to how well it works in OS X. (The Pan webpage mentions OS X as supported, so that's a good start.)

If you are comfortable tracking down dependencies and compiling, you can also build these on a Mac without Fink or MacPorts, but the package managers make upgrades and removal a lot easier.


If you're after binary newsreader (i.e., you just want a tool to aggregate and reassemble binary postings), you might want to take a look at ninan - since its web/java based it should be pretty platform agnostic.

I second Pan (install via MacPorts).Thunderbird (v3.0.1) becomes painfully slow and often crashes with larger lists.Another option (though limited in the number of headers it will download) is: MT-Newswatcher


I should go for NZBin

Free mac os x software

NZBin is a free Usenet client for the Mac OS X with a great GUI and has all features included (auto repairing, extracting, etc.). And it is the fastest client I've ever seen.
