The author isn't seriusly working on this application. If you want a fast, no thrills p2p client,
http://www.aresgalaxy.org
is probably for you. If you use another bit torrent client, once you run the prog, go to control pannel in the prog, and click bittorrent tab, and de-asociate it from .torrent, and run your bit torrent client.

One of the worst useless p2p client of the history

I installed this and RARELY does it ever connect to Ares network. Connects to Gnutella fine however. Still no G2 support? Have not tried Fasttrack with KCEasy since they have officially discontinued support. I'm glad they added a feature to disable the built-in browser, that was annoying. If you want to download from Gnutella network and prefer a non-java client (Cabos, Limewire) this is the one for you.

Nowadays ,
seeing P2P programs which are only
a plugin extension whatever of official P2P clients,
sort of hybrids,
octopus jumping over different P2P networks , useless ,
seeing these is a pity.
Also Looking at the code of this program
all make me wonder about the future
of similar garbage .

If this program was soley being used with FastTrack (available via optional plug-in), I would give it a 5. It always connects to that network in a snap and is an execellent alternative to K-Lite. However, in my experience I was barely able to connect to Gnutella or Ares. Gnutella performance in my opinion was mediocre compared to Limewire and Shareaza. I couldn't even connect to OpenFT, which is the main selling point of the program (i.e. graphical front end for OpenFT) even after numerous node updates and disabling of other plugins.

I think this program has potential, notwithstanding some serious shortcomings. The author needs to focus on improving OpenFT support for a better out of the box experience.

I look forward to the next version.

Excellent program though I will agree that BN was a little slow on this one as it was released on 10/4. There's also a Fasttrack plugin avaliable if you search for it hard enough. ;)

I have used every single P2P app under the sun and this is currently the best one out there. Ares was best, but something has happened to their network and now it is nearly impossible to download a file. All others are slow and/or full of adware/spyware. KCEasy isn't as fast as Ares was, but it will do. I love the giFT network, It will be an excellent network when more people connect to it. Keep up the excellent work Markus Kern!!!

Has been one of my favorite file sharing programs every since it first came out. I have watch very big improvements to this program. It is more simple than Shareaza to configure and uses less resources and has a nice browser with a popup blocker. It just has a simply interface not nothing fancy like the other file sharing programs, but it functions much better than most of them. Excellect program!

Faster than shareaza and now has the Ares network . I have been using this program for a long time and love it . I don't have to go into ''pending'' like shareaza does and i get great reults .

This is my first choice for p2p and i think i've downloaded them all , so far. I have even tested ones that are unknown or in beta .

This is a great p2p program !!

Does what it says, works well, pretty stable, but as far as file sharing goes.. this is very mediocre.

I'll stick with shareaza. It's free, open source, has a nicer GUI, and connects you to more files.

Pretty good app. I like the GUI, and it seems to work. Good if you want single mp3s or small movie files.
