New Improved Interface

Easynews recently announced a new user interface. As it is common nowadays, this interface is also in beta status. Regardless, it provides a wide range of options and it would require few articles to examine all these options. Therefore, let’s skip right into the core part of this interface  search engine.

There are two types of search: basic and advanced. Basic “Find Articles” search has nothing but a search box and an option to choose content type (video, audio, image), while “Find Groups” offers some search tags, search box and Order by option.

On the other hand, advanced search offers wide array of options. All these options are visible on the image below:

While talking about speed, it takes a few seconds of processing before the results are displayed, which is slower in comparison with most popular and best NZB sites and Usenet search engines. Results offer standard set of information; subject, size, group, time and poster.

Furthermore, user interface provides some other features, such as Zip Manager, Favorites, Saved Searches, etc. In the main menu, everything that users will ever need it situated: Preferences, Customer Support, etc.


If you are interested in primarily taking advantage of Usenet for the photos then Easynews offers the easiest solution available. There are some other simple solutions but the absolute simplest would be Easynews. All you do is signup for the service and browse the newsgroups for photos.


Easynews has our recommendation as they offer a good quality Usenet service with additional perks such as solid customer support, posting capability and the ability to earn free Gig credits.

    Even though I’ve only just signed up, I’ve been using EasyNews on and off for 10 or 15 years now. My friend had it for awhile. I had it for a few months and just recently got it again.

    I was on Astraweb.. I was getting like 7-12MB/sec download speeds, but a lot of stuff I wanted was not complete. Missing parts. Not only is it annoying, it wastes my GB, because I only get so many to download since I am on an unlimited speed plan.

    I switched over to EasyNews.. figured I’d give it a try.. faster downloads up to 17Mb/sec and those files? Downloaded NO problem and they were posted to usenet like 5.6 years ago!
