Emerald P2P UltraPeer is a very fast and precise download service which provides a built-in file search engine and chat functions. Using the service is extremely intuitive and you feel you are one click away from downloading any MP3 files, MPEGS (movie clips) or JPG's (pics). Being based on the massive popular LimeWire P2P client ,it is raw power at your fingertips. The fastest way to download a file is first to chose a category: Documents, Images, Audio, Video and Programs and then type whatever you want to find in the Gnutella P2P Network. It's OK if you don't specify the file type , the program will present all file types for you to chose your download.
Particularly useful for the seasoned P2P users is that you have options on searching MP3s by providing details such as: song title, artist, album or genre. Cinema lovers will find it easy to search for their favorite movies by specifying movie title, type, year, rating, subtitles, director, producer and may many other junk filtering criteria. We all know that P2P networks are clogged with junk files so it's great to hear that you will never get 200 results back for a simple search like "James Cameron Avatar 2009", most of them being junk P2P files. You are also given the option to search a contributors files to see what else they've included for anyone to download. You can also chat to the host by using the chat option when you right click on any product. This is only available if the other host has allowed his or her chat facility to be enabled.
