"The "new" team is taking their time"

January 23, 2004

 |  Version: Agent 1.93

Summary

Although Agent did lose precious time in the late '90's and early '00's, they have NO EXCUSES for lagging behind now. Multiple server support is needed NOW. Meanwhile the Agent team spends time with web page and newsgroup releases telling us what they're doing.

Agent lost ground to other newsreaders (especially Xnews) and is sadly idling away its remaining time. There are fewer and fewer Agent users out there every day and the designer seem oblivious to this. Agent is close to irrelevent and most of the blame can be laid at the designer's feet.

"Agent lost precious time in the late 90's when it was all but abandoned"

January 10, 2004

 |  Version: Agent 1.93

Summary

Agent has recently been brought back to life in the sense that it is now being developed again as a viable product. Unfortunately in the years that passed many other newsreaders have took up the slack and Agent has lost ground especially to Xnews (now my primary reader!).

The Agent crew now has a road map of future upgrades. I don't know if Agent can make up for lost time but one thing is certain- they need to move quickly. With multiple server clients supporting multimeida downloads no one is waiting around for Agent to catch up. A once great product, still a fine text reader.

"Not for Novice"

July 31, 2003

 |  Version: Agent 1.93

Summary

This is the best newsreader by far. If you don't like it, you are probably new to newsgroups, just like to download porn pictures or just plainly don't know how to use it to the fullest. Start learning!!!

"Still the Best!"

May 31, 2003

 |  Version: Agent 1.93

Summary

I've used Agent for 10 years. I've tried other News Readers just to see whats out there, but I've always come back to Agent.
Works great with Windows XP Professional.
Never have had a problem with Agent.
There might be better readers out there but for my money Agent is tops.
