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 :(
