    Isn't the new version of Safari going to have a newsgroup reader built in? I wonder how it will compare...

    Duff-Man says....I think you are confusing RSS newsfeeds with Usenet....afaik, Safari is not adding a usenet newsreader. Usenet is not the function of a browser, but is sometimes rolled into a mail application (like MS Entourage, or Mozilla's mail bundle)....oh yeah!

    I like Unison, but there are a few things I believe are lacking.

    For instance, if I want to search for all topics I've posted to, I enter my name in the search field and it highlights my posts. But there's no easy way (that I can see) of seeing the other messages in that thread. You have to make a note of the name, then clear the search field, then search for that topic by name.

    Also, (and I haven't used it in a while, so I could be mistaken) but I don't think there's any filters/rules functionality in Unison either.

    MTNewswatcher is the best I've used by far, but again I haven't seen it in a while.
