Accessibility Comments: 

 

I really like this app, although there were a few buttons that needed to be labeled first. For instance, in the download queue each item has two unlabeled buttons - pause and cancel. In the main toolbar, three buttons used to toggle the display need to be labeled - Downloads, RSS Feeds and Search. Once you have done this, the app should be very simple to use. The integrated usenet search feature is particularly neat.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
