Sponge allows you to download files from Usenet Newsgroups. An account with a Usenet News Server is required to use Sponge. It supports yEnc, uuEncode and Mime formats and decodes them while the download is in progress so there is no wait time for decoding after the articles have been downloaded. Search Usenet without downloading headers using online search engines or use the ability to offload article search to your news server. If your news server supports it, all information passed between your computer and the news server is encrypted using SSL.
