Shareaza 2.3.1

Shareaza is a file sharing system that can harness the power of up to four separate peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, including EDonkey2000, Gnutella, BitTorrent and Shareaza's native network, Gnutella2 (G2). Not only that, but Shareaza is completely FREE and won't show any annoying ads or pop-ups.

What is Shareaza 2.3.1 ?
Shareaza 2.3.1 is a peer-to-peer file sharing client which supports the Gnutella, Gnutella2, eDonkey Network, BitTorrent, FTP and HTTP network protocols and handles magnet links, ed2k links, Piolet links, and the now deprecated Gnutella links. It is available in 27 languages. It won't install any unwanted third party programs that can wreak havoc with your computer. No spyware, no registration, no "paid version". Just download and use. Simple.

Shareaza 2.3.1 Features:
+ Multi-network. Shareaza is able to connect to Gnutella, Gnutella2, eDonkey and BitTorrent.
+ Security filter. Shareaza contains an IP, keyword and hash security filter.
+ Plugins. Shareaza implements a framework for additional plugins. The Shareaza installer ships several plugins. Most of them are used to read and strip off built in metadata from the files being hashed and convert it to an external XML based format, or to decode multimedia files for making a preview for other G2 clients.
+ Skins. The client can have almost all parts of the GUI skinned. This includes bars and icons.
+ Modes. Shareaza contains 3 user modes. The first one is for normal users. This mode is the default mode and provides a clean, trimmed GUI. Users will not be able to heavily change the settings in this mode, but will be able to make use of the most essential functions, like searching and downloading. The second mode is for power users. It provides more access to network and advanced settings, but can also break your connection to the networks. The third mode is the windowed mode. In this mode, users can see different tabs at the same moment, providing a lot of control about the things happening.
