FrostWire Review

Felix Cheng
A BitTorrent client (formerly a Gnutella client)
A review of FrostWire by Felix Cheng

FrostWire is a feature-packed Bit Torrent client which also used to be a client used to access and download from the Gnutella Network. With the downfall of the popularity of Gnutella, the team over at FrostWire decided to shift their efforts over to the Bit Torrent network which is decentralized. Furthermore, the project developers are formerly of the LimeWire fame and have continued their existence with this client.

Don't worry about the association with LimeWire, FrostWire's developers are from the open source community and the technology behind FrostWire is pretty solid. It is based on free and open source and capable of handling large files.

As with any Bit Torrent client, there is always the possibility of downloading large files in a short amount of time with FrostWire. This means that accessing public domain movies and other content can be achieved with FrostWire completely free.

The overall user interface of this Bit Torrent client is pleasing to the eye and pretty easy to get around. With that said, you will have to learn a little bit about networking and the Bit Torrent protocol to be able to customize this application.. though the default options should be fine for anybody, really.

Installation note: This program is bundled with adware. The installer may attempt to change your homepage, search engine and browser settings or install third party offers. Pay very close attention when installing; the third party offers are not necessary for this software to function.
