Quite true. In the last couple of weeks I have downloaded and installed
several. All have missed the mark (e.g., a list of separate articles with no
thread capability, etc.). I downloaded webnews earlier today, but have not yet
installed it for testing. I have search all the normal places. I was hoping to
find someone that uses a web based reader and was really happy with its
features and performance. In any event though, thank you for your assistance.
I would have thought that more people would be doing web based news readers on
Linux servers for exactly the same reason I use a web based email reader on a
Linux server. I can read my mail from any machine with any browser no matter
where I happen to be located.
