Giganews, the world's premium Usenet provider, announced today that Mimo Usenet Browser and Golden Frog Usenet Search are out of the exclusive tech preview phase and are now available in beta for all Diamond Giganews members.

Mimo Beta Usenet Browser is a brand new cross-platform Usenet browser developed by Golden Frog specifically for the Giganews Usenet service. Mimo is optimized for faster browsing, searching and downloads. It features image thumbnail viewing as well as filtering capabilities on text, binaries and images. It is integrated with Golden Frog Usenet Search, a feature that indexes all of Giganews' retention.

Since July, select Diamond members participated in a tech preview of the browser and search features, providing feedback that was applied to the ongoing development of the products. From development to preview and into beta, Golden Frog implemented nearly 450 improvements based on Diamond Giganews member feedback.

Golden Frog Usenet Search is the world's only Usenet search engine capable of dynamically indexing Giganews' complete binary retention — that's over 800 days and counting! This is the only Usenet index in the world with the capacity to search all of Giganews. Golden Frog Usenet Search is integrated with Mimo Usenet Browser and runs on servers optimized for speed, providing subject-based binary search across all groups.
