retawq is a multi-threaded Web browser for text terminals on computers with Unix-like operating systems. It is fast, small, nicely configurable, and comfortable; e.g. the low-level network communications are performed in a non-blocking way, and you can keep open as many "virtual windows" as you want and work simultaneously in two of them in a split-screen mode.
LottaNZB aims to simplify and automate downloading of binary news from Usenet. You can tell it what to download using NZB files, which are created by many Usenet search engines. It integrates nicely with GNOME desktops, but is not limited to them, and uses the mature SABnzbd software as its foundation.
