2013 Best Small Newsreader: Binreader

April 1, 2013

2013-Best-Small-Newsreader-BinreaderAny of the Newsreaders can try for this category, but not all can compete effectively. In this category, size matters the most. But not just the download size…the amount of space it will take on the disk, the number and amount of resources that will be used including the memory and processor usage. And, Binreader (Windows portable version,) remains the Client to beat. The small 15 MB download will be just the first small thing you will notice. Simple, and powerful, this reader handles just about anything we threw at it.

Binreader For The Last 12 Months

There have been very few developments from the Binreader camp. They have remained in Version 1.0 beta 3, but now there is also a Synology version. That version contributes NAS support. Here are highlight features of the client:

  • Streaming – You can preview downloads while you are getting them. No disappointing , wasted GBs and hours spent downloading the wrong post.
  • SSL & iPv6 – Completely secured, iPv6 also available.
  • Ease Of Use – As simple as it can possibly get. Complete collection of tutorials can be found on their website…if needed.
  • Platforms – On almost any system one could imagine…including mobile. The portable version for Windows is the most popular among our readers.
  • Automation – Unpacking and repairing. Will also ignore PAR2 files if they’re not needed.
  • Portable – Using so few resources, and only 15 MB in size, it is one of the smallest footprints on the system resources, too. Portable version can be put on, and run from, any portable memory device.
