Editors' Review

+
This free P2P application lets you find and download files using a unique system. On the left side of the three-pane interface, you choose from a long list of Web pages that contain files you can download. Different sites offer different types of files, and the subject matter is usually apparent by the name. When you opt to download a file, a smaller file appears on your desktop, which you then open in BitComet. After a bit of a wait, the application aggregates users that have your requested file and starts a swarm download that gradually grows in sources and speed. We like the enormous variety of files available for download, but aside from paging through categories, there are not many ways to search for specific files. Still, the addition of a preview function helps. The BitComet client offers chat capabilities, stats trackers, and the ability to bookmark your favorite sites. Overall, we think BitComet and the BitTorrent system are a great alternative to most file-sharing apps, and the fact that this download is free sure doesn't hurt.

"Older Versions GREAT"

December 01, 2006  |  By bean_mrbean

 |  Version: BitComet 0.79

Pros

BitComet has always been my first choice,

Cons

but this newest version is buggy. It would only show one of the running torrents, and others would disappear from the GUI, even though still running. Use v 0.70 if you can find it, it is the last stable version and is GREAT

"0.79 is a step backward"

December 11, 2006  |  By QAEngineer

 |  Version: BitComet 0.79

Pros

- one of the best torrent P2Ps around

- I like the download scheduler and bandwidth usage control which is the reason why I installed v0.79 but then went back to the very stable v0.70 due to various problems

Unless you absolutely need the download scheduler, better stay with v0.70 (****) !!!

Cons

- v0.79 hangs far to often

- compared to v0.70, my average download rate dropped by more than 25%

- can't fully utilize my connection bandwidth anymore no matter how many torrents I download

"Don't download anything before you visit w,w,w,CookieShare,c,o,m"

December 10, 2006  |  By www.CookieShare.com

 |  Version: BitComet 0.79

Pros

The site is called CookieShare, and you can use it to send attachments (word, excel, powerpoint, mp3, jpg, etc.) securely to anybody without file size constraints of email servers, which typically limit attachments to 1 MB or 2 MB. You can use Cookie Share to send files up to 50 MB in size, which is big enough for anything I have ever sent to a friend or colleague.

I love using Cookie Share for sending attachments, and prefer it over email, mostly because the site is secure. It uses 128-bit encryption technology to upload AND download files, whereas email (as we all know) is NOT secure. You don't have to register to use CookieShare, there's no software to download, and it's free (how cool is that). It's a lot like Google in its ease-of-use, and the site is commercial-free, which is very refreshing these days.

Cons

It's just a great site. Don't take chances downloading software with ads, spyware, or viruses.

"If you haven't tried w,w,w,CookieShare,c,o,m you don't know file sharing!"

December 09, 2006  |  By bizsol

 |  Version: BitComet 0.79

Pros

This site is awesome, free, easy, secure and convenient. I've stopped downloading crappy proprietary software bundled with spyware, etc.

Cons

Try w,w,w,CookieShare,c,o,m and see why web-based file sharing beats software-based file sharing anytime.

"It doesn't work (at least on my computer)"

December 05, 2006  |  By rochellegt

 |  Version: BitComet 0.79

Pros

I can't tell you what I liked about it because it didn't work on my computer ='(

Cons

I tried downloading it numerous times and the downloading was successful but when I tried to actually open the program to use it it wouldn't open. And I tried uninstalling it and re-installing it numerous times as well. I don't know what's wrong. If somebody could help me out, that would be great =)
