Google Groups Comments

Nonplussed :-/

Negative Comment by ScottSacCa
about Google Groups Jul 2016

Google groups has the bewildering interface typical of their products. If you are at home in them then you'll probably find Google groups just fine. I however often feel lost and confused, struggling to finally find what I want. Most google product just have a bad user experience once you are past their superficial use - IMHO.

Many moons ago, I used and LOVED the Virtual Access (VA) Offline Reader. Seeking something similar for Linux... still looking :(
