Publisher's Description
LimeWire is a software tool that enables peer-to-peer file sharing on the Gnutella network. Similar to the popular Napster service, it enables the sharing, searching, and downloading of MP3 music files. LimeWire also lets users share and search for all types of computer files, including movies, pictures, games, and text documents. Other features include pushing uploads and downloads, BearShare QHD compatibility, the ability to measure the speed of remote hosts and preview files while downloading, and a chat feature.

Version 2.9.8 features better search results, especially for rare files, lower bandwidth use, local network searches for lightning-fast downloads, improved grouping of search results for better downloads and fewer corrupt files, and support for MAGNET links that allow you to click on Web page links that access Gnutella.

Third-party applications bundled with this download may record your surfing habits, deliver advertising, collect private information, or modify your system settings.
