    I use Vienna. It's free and does a nice job.

    does it allow you to download off newsgroups or just read ?

    MT Newswatcher. Free and it works well.

    Vienna is not a Usenet reader, it is a RSS feed reader and I don't believe that is what you were looking for,

    I must have tried them all over the years in both OS X and Windows, and Unison for OS X is my favourite by far. I mostly download binaries.

    Thank you I stand corrected. I haven't used Usenet in a while.
    If you need an RSS reader Vienna is a nice option.
