"Although I did not use it, it cached 50+GB."

Pros

Nothing as I didn't use it.

Cons

I've run out of free space on my hard drive and with Disk Inventory X I realized that Freenet has a single cache file of 48 Gb and other datas as well. Instantly deleted.

"Great P2P software that avoids lawsuits"

July 09, 2011  |  By malcarada

Pros

Besides anonymous P2P filesharing you can also post anonymous websites (only accessible through Freenet) and chat anonymously with others.

Cons

It is slow due to Freenet routing the traffic around nodes to hide people's computer IP

Summary

Freenet makes users untreaceable from the RIAA and your ISP, nobody on Freenet ever got a lawsuit letter, can any other filesharing software say the same?

Freenet contains some offensive material just like the Internet also contains offensive material but the benefits of the Internet outweigh the problems it causes, the same can be said about Freenet.

"WARNING!! Mostly highly illegal content."

September 09, 2010  |  By sofacost1

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

none at present, was looking into for file sharing but boards are mostly pedophile related. I'm all for freedom but even boards that are not are dangerous and don't contain much else.

Cons

nobody there, stick with torrent clients. mostly highly illegal content from post desriptions.

Summary

If your'e looking to talk annoymously I guess it's good for that but be careful. This is the web uncensored. It's rude, crude, and nude.
