I have a PC now and use Forte Agent for reading newsgroups online. Since I'm switching to Mac is there a good newsgroup Agent for the Mac?

Your two best bets are MT-Newswatcher (Free) and Unison. I have both. I prefer MT-Newswatcher for non-binary (text) groups and small binary (pictures) groups. I prefer Unison for multi-part binary groups. Unison makes downloading multi-part files much easer than does MT-Newswatcher. Posting is pretty good from either, but again I prefer Unison for posting multi-part binaries.

Here's another vote for MT-Newswatcher.

I don't do a lot of binary downloading (other than the occasional picture :-)), so it works perfectly for me.
