The web-based service gives users direct access to Easynews Usenet via any web browser such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome.

This is traditional Usenet service where users configure their newsreader of choice to the Easynews servers. The Easynews NNTP newsgroup servers contain a full list of over 100,000 newsgroups–both text and binary–that subscribers can access through multiple ports. Easynews also doesn’t cap the number of encrypted connections on its NNTP Usenet service–a feature unheard of with other providers.
