Of course, this little file sharing program can't compare with Kazaa or Bearshare since it is little with not even a million users, but I suggest for people to use this when they can't find a file on kazaa or bearshare, etc which might be rare anyways.

'Can\'t resume downloads and frequently loses connections. KaZaA Lite is much better.'

I've used Freewire for the last 2 years, and this new version is a COMPLETE waste of time. Files won't download, it adds spyware, it now limits your ability to chose or add additional servers. Even if it says it finds the file, it can't download them. Not to mention the ever non-existent support.

larry king is right and i'll never d/l files again without reading the opinions first! this has so much adware and a parasite called bookedspace that's near impossible to get rid of! even with spybot or adaware. its horrible :-( don't get it. it shouldn't even be here for people to d/l.

FreeWire, a poor clone of LimeWire, is SO loaded with spyware its unbelievable! The spyware hides as bogus search "assistants" with legitimate names. This software is dangerous and poses a security risk to anyone still running windows. Stick to LimeWire, at least they don't load your computer up with spyware. The FreeWire coders are an unethical group. If they want to make money they shouldn't have chosen GPL software to clone. The Borg Queen
