FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client (formerly a Gnutella client). It is the product of a collaborative effort from many Open Source and freelance developers located from all around the globe.

It sports a number of functions and features found on the popular uTorrent BitTorrent client like a built-in content search engine, and the ability to send large files to family and friends. In fact, the more you share a file the faster your transfer speeds become as you collaborate to make an ever larger BitTorrent swarm.
