Please either download Ares via FTP or use the following link:

Otherwise you will get an AD-WARE Bundled Stub Dwonloader.

This is the cleanest, fastest, and smallest P2P program available. I am very pleased to see its authors are once again continually releasing updated versions.

Absolutely great P2P program. No Java required. No spyware. Easy configuraiton. Fast downloads. I can find exactly what I want and have it playing within 30-40 seconds, so it's really the easiest way to grab MP3's. What more could you ask?

When P2P progz have support for torrents they are mostly blacklisted by torrentforums and why do you think they support torrents?Yes : P2P itself is so out-of-date
There are so many other ways find youre MP3, video or whatever, ever heard of tagoo ru (?)or Bit-Che torrentsearcher, katz cd, newsgroups, the list goes on on and on.. music& and more everywhere. P2P is so something of the past..
The only thing that is a nice feature is that has chatforums, but also there are soo many alternatives like IRC Chat

Absolutely brilliant file sharing program! I find this program far better than other file sharing programs that I've used! I usually get many hits when I search for various files and the files download fast. It also handles torrent files very well!

I hope not to offend anyone who rated this highly. I prefer not to engage in a heated 'back-and-forth' exchange. I just speak from my own experience as the manager of a small internet center.

At first, I thought this would be a good alternative to LimeWire and KaZaa, being that it's OpenSource. However, every time a customer downloads and runs this app, our network goes down.

You would probably like to say that this is due to a poor wiring/configuration job. I might even agree with you, except for the fact that Cabos causes no such problems.

After I turn off the computer running Ares, the internet comes back for the rest. And scanning with Spyware Doctor finds a few nasties, too.

Please use with caution.

Absolutely looove this program!!! It's clearly the best of the best!!! Download speeds are blazing (obviously, the more stars a file has the faster it gets), it's clean from malware, it's light and rock stable and interface is modern, fast, responsive... A true example.

My wish came true by the way, about a dark and a light skin... well, it was a predictable feature maybe.

The best P2P app around in terms of network efficiency and upload bandwidth utilization, this has the fastest downloads of any client, not one single gnutella/limewire client has the speed this does.

I've been a proud user of this client for over 3 years, and it's never let me down. And as for you people griping about then removing web browsing, it was just just IE integration, so in essence you had a stripped down browsing experience, it's not like it's going to be the only app you need to use, that's why it minimizes to task bar.

The network could be more responsive, all else the program is very stable and the download rates are excellent; I can pull 450kb/s downloads on a 5mbps connection, most of my torrents don't get that kind of speed.

@GuyHersch

Thanks a million for the right link ! it is still not working right through betanews. still one of the best programs to download single music files.
with or without browser, and with or without the "new" interface. it performs rock steady.

Yes, the new UI... I just don't like the COLOR of it but it's great. It's indeed very similar to the former skin (for the complainers to see).

Ares should ship with a DARK (current) and a LIGHT theme (like the former) to choose from. That's my thought.

I just love the program.
