Editors' Review

+

From its start as a post-Napster clone to its leading role as the quintessential Gnutella client, LimeWire has been one of the highest-profile P2P applications. The 4.0 series further ups the ante with a combination of new features, an updated interface, and better all-around performance.

On the surface, the refined and zippier Java interface houses some snazzy new icons and a few new features, including a connection-quality meter and a button matrix for zeroing in on specific file types. The search interface now sports a progress bar, and file information--such as artist and album--is more clearly displayed. The improved network performance gave us considerably more search results than previous versions and a more reliable downloading experience (for a P2P client, that is). This latest version also feels more nimble despite its inherently resource-heavy Java-based foundation. We like the What's New feature, which lists files recently added to the network. The check box to filter out adult content also is a nice touch.

The new features and overall functionality make this by far the most mature version of LimeWire to date. Despite the typical performance flaws found in all file-sharing clients, this latest version continues to offer solid performance and good looks across the board.

"Limewire Works !"

November 10, 2007  |  By waynecnet1

 |  Version: LimeWire 4.14.10

Pros

It great program and I like it format and filters should you have small children and I behoove's the user to have a antivirous & spywire running at all times

Cons

I am still in the dark as to why some folks are having law suits filed against them and I keep reading that it is against eh law to download music without paying for it ? But I lost count of the number of site that offer free downloads of music ect,ect. I did some research on this and if computer companies can make computer with dvd /cd/ hardware and software. How will the REcording industry stop this. It seem to me about 20 yrs ago Sony saw sued by Motion picture industry for the same thing copyright volations? Sony won and we still have the option to record and make copies of dvd /vsh if we widh to do so.

And while Limewire has explained there postion regarding this and even file a counter suit against the recording industry I hope that closure can be done very soon. I enjoy picking and choosing some of my oldie but goodie songs that you rarely ever hear on FM. Sirus of any other Radio channels

"Great Program! I love it!"

December 10, 2007  |  By Nuke Baby

 |  Version: LimeWire 4.14.10

Pros

I have been using Limewire for several years now. I thinks it's much better than Kazaa, Morpheus, and Audio Galaxy were. It offers you many filters, and it works great if you have a high-speed ISP. Make sure you know how to set up Limewire. Make sure you are not sharing any files you want kept private. Set up your filters properly, and you'll be fine.

Cons

You are at the mercy of other users and the scum at the MPAA/RIAA who plant bogus files . Too many people share mis-labeled songs or disguise porn links as legitimate files.
