Back when the Internet was young and dinosaurs roamed the earth, Usenet was the place to be. Blogs and Twitter didn't exist yet, but you could carry on threaded conversations through newsgroup posts. File sharing apps like LimeWire weren't around, but you could still share executable files and media through binary newsgroups. Well, guess what? Usenet still exists out there, and folks still use it.

Ozum is an all-in-one newsreader app that you can use to prowl newsgroups. Not only can you read and post messages, but it also allows you to search for and find the binary files you're looking for. Once you find them, you can preview them and download what you want. After all, it doesn't make much sense to grab a whole bunch of pieces of a multi-part file if it turns out that it really isn't what you're looking for.

Ozum is a free Windows application.
