Hello, again.

I have another question. Would someone help me?

Would you use these sentences?
(a) We can get information from the Internet more easily than any other means.
(b) We can get information from the Internet as easily as any other means.

Thanks in advance.

(a) seems to imply the internet is better than other ways.
(b) seems to imply that getting info from the internet is equal to other ways of getting info , not any better.

Just my feeling on it; better wait for other replys.

I think they're both fine, but they're a bit formal and stiff.

Just know (as you may already) that they mean two different things.
