Another trick in netscape 4.x + and mozilla is to do File|Offline|Synchronize,
and choose the newsgroups to synchronize (which will be remembered next time
you do this). Go away and make a cup of tea. The body of all the new messages
for the day will be downloaded from your isp onto your HDD. That way, you can
click any news message and see it instantly, instead of having to wait a second
for the body to download from the isp.
