I've been reseaching p2p networks lately and the two top p2p clients that ive come across are Shareaza (sharelive) and kazaalite in my book. Between the two of them, who do you think comes out on top??
Most users really hate Kazaa because of all the privacy issues and such.
knock Kazaa all you want, but Kazaa lite has no spyware and an awesome search engine so there for, its one of my top used p2p clients... You can do endless searching and Irc chat and much more... its awesome. Now, there are a TON of fake files on the kazaa network, this i know. Shit, i have prolly downloaded 1/3 of all that exist. lol. This would be its biggest downfall. You can however, find verifieds fairly easily BUT, the hashing system seems strange because there will be times when a file just is not available.. not queued, not just in need of some more sources, but comepletely sourceless. I don't quite understand that.
'Raza? i havent really downloaded anything but movies so far. At least that is a ton better... i like the added search features to the videos. Also its good that 'raza come with .torrent support. That is very cool indeed, but i find i have much better luck (not to mention speed) using bt's official & unofficial software to d/l bt files. While searching didn't quite yield as good of results that kazaa lite could, it did however seem to list more authentic files. I also found sharelive.com to be quite useful as i did verifieds.com for kazaa... The ability to connect to 3 different networks seemed awesome to me at first too, but then it really didn't change much for my download. actually, it seemed to slow it down... lol
Maybe im not utilizing the tools that 'raza has available to their fullest extent, but i think that in all kazaa wins because of senority. Shareaza is new. Maybe in time it will amount to 4 times as large as the Kazaa network. Who knows. Me, im going to use still use both programs.. each for different reasons/strengths that the other doesn't have......
what do y'all think....? Which is better?
