Although I use eMule more, LimeWire is still one of my favourite P2P apps simply because it’s so easy to use and reliable. On the downside, it doesn’t return as many hits as eMule but most importantly, I find the download speeds significantly lower. A while back, James gave some practical tips on how to improve LimeWire download speeds but if they haven’t done much for you, then here’s a list of my top 5 suggestions to boost downloads.
- LimeWire Acceleration Patch – High end mod extension boosting speeds by up to 400%
- LimeWire Accelerator – Also works with Kazaa, Morpheus and BearShare
- LimeWire Ultra Accelerator – Increases speed and automatically deletes corrupt files
- P2P Doctor – Removes malware that may be blocking LimeWire
- P2PTurbo – Inspects LimeWire and claims download speeds of up to 600% quicker
