The newsreader talks a specialised newsgroup NNTP protocol to the newsserver, usually provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). A browser talks to an HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) server such as Google. Newsreaders don’t talk to Google and browsers don’t talk to new servers. Newsreaders use separate mechanism for delivering news from the browser-based Google Groups that you may be used to. It is the same content. Google works by translating between the two delivery mechanisms.
newsreaders.com maintains a list of newsreaders.
A newsreader can also refer to a hand-held unit like a Kindle used for reading newspapers electronically. The New York Times has one that works with Adobe Air.

I can’t very well fix erroneous or ambiguous text if I can’t find it.
