1. Can handle a ton of downloading at once. The more you ask for the better it performs.

This is by far the best way to find what you want but don’t expect to simply install and run. You must configure it. The best bet is to download a MOD that takes care of port forwarding, server updates, and connection to networks. MOD’s are best for new users, but still expect to study the software and it’s navigation’s to get the most out of it. You will learn that you get more content than any other p2p.
eMule is still alive and kicking. These days, file sharing is all about BitTorrent and file-hosting websites like RapidShare and the ill-fated MegaUpload. Many of the older file-sharing applications have long-passed – LimeWire, Kazzaa, AudioGalaxy, Napster – they’re no more. But eMule is still with us. It’s a peer-to-peer file-sharing application that uses eDonkey servers and its own decentralized Kad network.
Unlike many peer-to-peer applications, eMule is an open-source project and it doesn’t come bundled with any adware or spyware. With an integrated search feature and a shared files directory, eMule represents another era of file sharing.
It may be hard to believe – given all the attention paid to BitTorrent and other file-sharing methods – but eMule is still quite popular.
