Publisher's Description

FrostWire allows any individual to share his/her content to millions of people right from his/her computer without any cost thanks to the BitTorrent P2P network.

FrostWire, a BitTorrent client (formerly a Gnutella client), is a collaborative effort from hundreds of Open Source and freelance developers from around the world. In late 2005, concerned developers of LimeWire's open source community announced the start of a new project fork "FrostWire" that would protect the developmental source code of the LimeWire client. The developers of FrostWire give high regard and respect to the GNU General Public License and consider it to be the ideal foundation of a creative and free enterprise market. FrostWire has evolved to replace LimeWire's BitTorrent core for that of Vuze, the Azureus BitTorrent Engine, and ultimately to remove the LimeWire's Gnutella core to become a 100% BitTorrent client that is simple to use.

Went back to version 5.7, for some reason all versions 6.0.x kept crashing every 15-20 minutes.

@someguy. Do you ever have anything positive to say about anything you download from fileforum? How it "tried" to download what you assert it was trying to do is beyond compreshension.

I rate this program a 4 by the way.

It was useful as a Gnutella client, but since Gnutella support has been dropped, it is useless as a Torrent client (one of the worst by the way) and ad-ware to boot.

Updates to this seem to be coming rapid fire lately. It does what i says it will and has a wide range of torrents to chose from.

For some reason, the last few versions of FrostWire have been crashing my graphics driver. Why? I'm not sure. My drivers are all up to date, so there should be no issue. Until I figure out how to resolve this issue, I'll stay away from FrostWire

I removed this program today just after it updated. IMHO all is not well with this program & seems to have a mind of it's own.

Malwarebytes is blocking sites by the dozen with the program just idling. It might be me but if you use Frostwire just take care until you are used to it.

A very polished program however. Just have some anti-malware running.

Beware the spooks are watching you!

However as this program ‘can’ be used for legitimate uses - Highly unlikely but it is theoretically possible.

If used legitimately it's a good program.

P.S. Although frost don't contain spyware just running it drives 'Malwarebytes'/NIS crazy. It blocked about 50 connections in 5 mins - Beware.

Asking whether Frostwire is safe and legal is like asking whether a gun is safe and legal. It depends on who handles that. I saw an excellent review on this page. http://computersight.com...-legal-frostwire-review/

Nice application and it it open source. My main beef is that it is written in java so I can only rate it with two stars.

I am very glad this program is so popular because it makes it so easy for Movie and Music industry to track people. This just takes the heat off the people doing it the "other" ways. Keep it up frostwire aka limewire :)
