Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
In the realm of reliable newsreaders, NewsShark is a top contender. It specializes in downloading large files from Usenet, preventing partial or failed downloads with a multipart Resume feature. The partial file preview features downloads, decodes, and plays the first segment of an MP3 or MPEG, giving you the chance to decide if you want to download the full file. The program supports all popular encoding formats and has sufficient speed to meet the needs of most computer users. You shouldn't have any problem negotiating the user screens with its modern-looking interface. The trial download is reasonably small but only offers limited functionality.

    Developer's Description

    NewsShark is designed to get large files in formats such as MP3, RAR, and ZIP from Usenet. Mission-specific features include a partial file preview that will download, decode, and play the first segment of an MP3 or MPEG with just a double-click, and Emergency Restart, which automatically resumes interrupted downloads without starting over.
