KaZaA is simply wonderful. You can download anything, from unreleased movies to full computer programs. Ever since I first installed it in January, through a friend's recommendation, I have downloaded every single upgrade. I can truly say that this is one program I would definately keep.
So, what is KaZaA? Well, behind the wierd name is a peer to peer program, which lets you download virtually anything. It has users all over the world, so chances are you'll find what your looking for. However, it is best for those with LAN or DSL.
Version 1.71 lets you double your search results, so you can download more files, from more users, which means faster downloads. There is also a Theater, which means you can listen to the songs or watch the videos while you are downloading them.
Kazaa's major features are fantastic. You can search ANYTHING by file name, as well as by category or artist. Also, if you are annoyed by constant disrupted downloads, KaZaA is perfect - if your download is interrupted, you can simply resume it, and it will take off where it left off.
And finally, you can use Kazaa's family filter to avoid adult content, viruses or false files.
