"The world's most popular P2P download manager"
eMule is one of the most popular peer-to-peer (P2P) download managers today, and it’s been that way for several years. It, of course, is an improvement on the old eDonkey. Just like all P2P programs, eMule connects its community of users, who share a folder on their computers with the program so you can download shared copies of their files. This allows you to get virtually any type of file, from applications to music to ebooks, for free.
The files are fragmented and downloaded in small pieces in a random order, often from multiple different user computers. And although you can’t open the file until it’s 100% downloaded, at a certain percentage you can get a preview of it.
A cool feature of eMule is its chat, which lets you communicate with other users.
There are a couple disadvantages, though. First, it isn’t as fast as uTorrent or Ares, for example. But because it has been so popular for so long, the variety of files you can find is incredible. The other downside is that there are a lot of files that are infected with viruses, so you have to be very careful when you pick which files to download.
