Hello Everyone! This is Haris from SizzledCore and I am having the honor to Guest Blog at Sizlopedia. I would like to share some of my best picks related to P2P File sharing applications. For more tips and tricks and other internet and software walkthroughs please visit my blog.
Recently I downloaded many free P2P (Peer-to-Peer) sharing applications and gave them a try to see which was best for me. Some of them were good, I got nice speeds, but some were extremely slow. Here I bring you the list of the best of P2P applications available for free and can be used to download music, movies etc.
LimeWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing client for the Java Platform, which uses the Gnutella network to locate and transfer files. Released under the GNU General Public License, Limewire is free software. It also encourages the user to pay a fee, which will then give the user access to LimeWire Pro. The Pro version allows you to download at very fast speeds, the search results are optimized, and the Pro version has its own unique skin.
Shareaza is a peer-to-peer file sharing client which supports the Gnutella, Gnutella2, EDonkey Network, BitTorrent, FTP and HTTP network protocols and which can handle magnet links, ed2k links, Piolet links, and the now deprecated Gnutella links. It is available in 27 languages. It has loads of features and download speeds are also impressive.
Kazaa Media Desktop is a peer-to-peer file sharing application using the FastTrack protocol. Kazaa is owned by Sharman Networks and is infamous for the alleged high number of computer viruses, trojans and worms it helped to propagate. Kazaa is commonly used to exchange MP3 music files over the Internet. However it can also be used to exchange other file types, such as videos, applications, and documents. The official Kazaa client can be downloaded free of charge, bundled with adware and spyware, although there are “No spyware” claims found on Kazaa’s website. Throughout the past few years, Kazaa’s developing company has been the target of many copyright-related lawsuits. For some reason, I hate Kazaa and don’t like it. Once I download an audio file and my PC got infected with hundreds of bugs and viruses.
iMesh is a file sharing and online social network. It uses a proprietary, centralized, P2P protocol. iMesh is owned by an American company iMesh, Inc. and maintains a development center in Israel. iMesh was the first company to introduce “swarming” – the ability to download one file from multiple sources, increasing download speed. Not better though. Limewire still stays at the top of the list!
BearShare is a peer-to-peer file sharing application originally created by Free Peers, Inc. for Microsoft Windows and currently sold by MusicLab, LLC. They have given file-sharing a new meaning. With this, you can do the usuals like downloading music, movies plus you can even see other users’ profiles, photos etc. You can chat with your friends and meet many new people there. And it support hundreds on MP3 players.
