FrostWire is a P2P client with which you will be able to get any kind of file as long as users share their content. As in any BitTorrent application, the download speed will depend on the number of users who have the archive you request, so popular files and small files like MP3 are more likely to be downloaded faster than large files.
This last version of FrostWire includes the usual features of torrent clients such as the management of the files, or the possibility to choose which elements you want of a bigger package. The main benefit of these clients is the decentralized P2P network, formerly Gnutella supported, which does not depend on a central server where the information is stored. This way the traffic is shared by all the connected users who share all kind of files, increasing the diversity of content on the Internet.
FrostWire has a smart search engine that works in a similar way to the popular web searches, based on keywords for identifying the most popular archives. With the intuitive autocomplete feature, FrostWire immediately shows recent and usual searches previously made by other users. You can filter the results depending on your own criteria. Frostwire supports several protocols, which makes it very useful for downloading different files, not only from P2P networks, but also from central servers such as popular streaming websites as MP3 files from Soundcloud.
