LimeWire is the best Gnutella
client I have tried so far (but that's only my opinion). As Marvinius wrote, it's entirely written in Java
and should therefore run on any platform where a JRE
and a network connection are available. No, make that a JRE, a network connection and half a gig
to keep Java happy.
- Multiple simultaneous searches
- A cool spinning lime slice when a search is being processed
- Ability to throttle upload bandwidth
- Ability to filter out crappy hits, like "x" and "x.mp3"
- Hasn't crashed on me yet
Update as of 2002-06-18:
As everyone should know by now, the Gnutella network genuinely sucks. I don't use it anymore.
