ShareZilla is an elite BitTorrent file sharing client developed for fast and easy downloading offering a wide range of user-friendly features and extended support for multiple p2p networks such as Gnutella2, Gnutella, eDonkey, and BitTorrent.
The main trait of the program is its ease of use allowing undemanding handling from both experienced p2p users and people who are just starting to grasp the meaning of file sharing. Just type in the search box the title you want to find (movie, song, artist, ebook, author) and even select a specific filter to your searching (advanced metasearch) and you'll be presented with dozens of results to pick from.
ShareZilla also includes a built-in media player that allows you to preview the files you are downloading to make sure they are really the stuff you wanted. While the download queue is managed automatically, the program also enables you to configureit manually.
This is one of the most resourceful p2p clients in terms of file-management systems - it assists you in monitoring and categorizing any type of files stored on your computer. Moreover, it includes a chat channel to help you communicate with other users.
ShareZilla offers a functional interface that still does not neglect its visual aspect. Any gratuitous element has been removed to let effectiveness prevail: Multi-Network support, Optimized search results, Turbo-charged downloads, Ghost ratings, a Queue area which you can fully configure, Advanced file-management system, and more.
