New revolutionary way of working with Usenet. Instead of downloading a large amount of headers, GrabIt allows you to just go to a group and browse the contents without downloading headers!

Tired of downloading megabytes of headers just to see if there is anything available you want? Try the new GrabIt search and you will never use Usenet like you did before! Instantly find and download all posts on Usenet matching your search keywords!
*Automatic repair and extract of downloaded binaries
You no longer have to check, repair and extract your downloads by hand. All of these tasks will be handled by GrabIt automatically! Fill up your batch and leave your PC running. When you come back all of your downloads will be ready to be used.
*SSL secure connection support
GrabIt supports the ability to fully encrypt all your traffic to the Usenet server with industry standard SSL technology!
*NZB file support
GrabIt has full integrated support for the well known NZB format. Just double click on a NZB file on your desktop and all the files that are described in the NZB file will automatically be downloaded by GrabIt!
*Easy to use and familiar looking user interface
Care has been taken to make the downloading of binaries as fast and easy as possible. This is why most people love GrabIt.
*Fast selecting, downloading and decoding of binary attachments
See a binary you want, select it and GrabIt does the rest! It will download and combine all parts and decode your binary to the location you specified.
*Download and decode multiple articles at once
Download up to eight articles at the same time! Don't waste valuable online time while waiting for a binary to decode! GrabIt will decode in the background so the downloading will only stop when you want it to!
*Pause function to free bandwidth
GrabIt is fast! Almost too fast for some people! That is why it can sometimes be difficult to download from the Internet with other software while using GrabIt. No problem! Just hit the pause button, download your stuff and hit the pause button again! GrabIt will resume the download like nothing happened!
Don't waste time and bandwidth downloading data again and again! GrabIt remembers where you stopped or paused your download and will resume from the exact same article.
*Advanced error checking
GrabIt continuously monitors incoming data while downloading. This insures that binaries are correctly downloaded and avoids having to download all parts again to fix a communication error in the middle of your binary. GrabIt can even repair and recover from some common errors without downloading extra data.
*Multiple server support
With GrabIt you can use all your favorite newsservers within the same session! Whether you want to work with 1, 10, or thousands of newsservers, with GrabIt it's a breeze.
Watch all important processes from within the same view! GrabIt shows you:
# download speed;
# items, bytes and time downloaded;
# items, bytes and time remaining;
# exact status of all entries in the batch.
*Find option and Filters
You hate going through thousands of posts that you already downloaded to find the one binary you haven't got? With the advanced filters and find options in GrabIt you won't have to! Hide or show the articles you already downloaded. Match thousands of binaries and newsgroups with multiple keywords, with GrabIt it's done in seconds!
*Incremental group update
Don't download the same headers time after time! The Incremental Update feature of GrabIt is the fastest way to download new headers.
Want to request a repost or thank somebody for their great post? With GrabIt running you don't have to start another newsreader to post a message. Just hit the post button, type your message and GrabIt takes care of the rest!
What's New in This Release:I'm working on a brand new version of GrabIt at the moment full with new features, but Niels Teusink found a security flaw in GrabIt that needed fixing. So I took the old code from GrabIt 1.7.2 beta 3 and did a quick bug fix. Please download and install it as soon as possible. Especially if you use NZB files a lot.
The changes since GrabIt 1.7.2 beta 3 are:
* BUGFIX: Removed a stack overflow vulnerability in the NZB importer that Niels Teusink discovered
* BUGFIX: GrabIt no longer disconnects on every server error, lowering the possibility of a 'Connection limit reached' error
System Requirements:MD5 hash (to check authenticity)
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
