  1. 1. A newsreader is the program that provides you with access to the vast wealth of resources available on the Usenet. These programs are usually compact, easy to usebut do have varying capacities. Some of themare oriented toward getting binaries, which isthe overarching term for any digital file found on the newsgroups. Others are solely oriented toward reading text posts and will provide clunky service if you try to downloadbinaries. The free newsreaders available are numerous and versatile and should include options for just about everyone's preferences.http://planetusenet.cc/newshosting

  8. 8. Because the technology is web-based, it can run on any computerIt provides fairly advanced services, such as integration with sitesthat can provide search features for various types of files
