Editors' Review

Fastest P2P promises to be the fastest peer-to-peer file-sharing program available. Although we can't vouch for that, we can say that it seems to be an adequate--if not particularly impressive--piece of software.

The program's interface looks very much like an earlier version of LimeWire and is fairly intuitive. Users will want to pay attention during the installation process; the "typical installation" installs a toolbar, sets Fastestp2p as the default search engine, and makes Fastp2p.com the default home page. Using the program was very much like using other Gnutella P2P programs; it searched, it found, and we downloaded, at quick but not blazing speed. We are dubious of Fastest P2P's claims that "the items that appear in your search results will always be free of viruses and 100 percent trustworthy." That's an awfully big claim to make, and our search results definitely contained some fishy files. Anyone using any P2P software should be wary of such results--P2P networks contain the good, the bad, and the ugly--and we feel that Fastest P2P is doing its users a disservice by encouraging them to let down their guards where this is concerned. The program does not seem to have a Help file or support page on its Web site, which is never a good thing. Overall, Fastest P2P wasn't awful, but we feel that its claims of awesomeness might be a bit overblown.

Fastest P2P is free. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program with reservations; it works, but it's not as great as it sounds.
