Editors' Review

FrostWire is a fork of the LimeWire source code, and as such, it functions exactly the same. When you search for a file using FrostWire, you get results from LimeWire, and vice versa.

However, the user experience differs in two ways. One is that the code is actually based on LimeWire Pro, the paid version of the popular P2P client, so users don't have to worry about simultaneous download restrictions, and they won't get bombarded by ads. Also, befitting the name, the interface has changed from green to blue and has been slightly improved. Tabs have rounded corners, and there are two additions, as well. Connections monitors your outgoing and incoming connections by host name, but also provides bandwidth information, the vendor and version being used, and more. There's also a built-in community chat.

When we tested it, the built-in media player in FrostWire didn't work with MP3s or MPGs, although those files worked fine in LimeWire and elsewhere. The app also comes bundled with the ASK toolbar, but you can opt out of that during the installation process. While some people have experienced faster download times with FrostWire compared with its parent, others have not. FrostWire and LimeWire are practically indistinguishable, although the lack of ads is a big plus.

"I really enjoy using FrostWire, it works so well."

October 12, 2010  |  By OlChiefMac

 |  Version: FrostWire 4.20.9 4.20.8

Pros

I have used many other peer to peer programs and while most accomplished their purpose, FrostWire seems to do it so much smoother and faster. It's the one program I use now.

Cons

I wish it would let you monitor the incoming searches like it used to. I thought it was very interesting to see what others were looking for.
