Doesn't work. Tells me my news server address at Giganews is an "Invalid Address", which I know it isn't. I've set up plenty of newsreaders with many different accounts over the years, so I'm no newbie. Looks promising, but if I can't get past step 1, it's of no use to me. I'll stick with Thoth and Unison until they can fix this.

Apart from the extreme slowness, what kills this app is that it can't download article headers only, it will always download all the full articles - which is just not acceptable in an offline newsreader.

Terribly slow connection! MaxNews (X 1.1) are currently downloading last 500 messages from the server and the estimated download time are 2 hours!!! (Current rate 0 KB/s) (btw: I'm on a 1Mbps+ DSL connection) Removing it now...

Not worth it. It took a LONG time to download the full group list from the server. Then it took a long time to download 200 articles in a newsgroup. Then there was no way to configure the font in the preview panel. And, the killer, no clickable links. Forget it.
