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 includes torrent support, and 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.

"Why Can't You Leave Limewire Alone!!!!!"

February 03, 2009  |  By Collegeville

 |  Version: LimeWire 4.16.7

Pros

I find nothing likable about a program that I can't use.

Cons

Limewire was fine. You are constantly "upgrading" something that already work.
I can download the new limewire...but it never connects. I have used limewire since....FOREVER. Now, I cannot use it because it's been "Upgraded".

Summary

If you are going to keep "upgrading" this program...included instructions on how screwed up it will make your computer. Two weeks ago, I use the older version with no problems. Now the "upgraded" 5.0 will not work on a system that the previous version worked just fine. Even when I try to download the previous version, I am directed to the 5.0 version.

PLEASE!!! LEAVE THIS PROGRAM ALONE!!!!!!!
