    Sorry, but I have to vote for Overnet. When I first installed it and started it, I got like 30kbs straight away. I should be getting higher, but when I used eMule, I used to get 25kbs max. FOr like 1 hour. Sure, it has spyware, but I have the solution to stopping that spyware anyway ;). The only bad thing about Overnet is that you don't get many sources for each file.

    Overnet is like the Kazaa of eMule.

    What's there to be sorry for? Overnet rocks.

    One tiny hole in your research. Onet uses the exact same network as eMule.

    You do know that the 'spyware' is optional during the install right?

    Yes, I knew, but actually it gives you spyware even if you say no. I scanned the Onet files and I had like this Bookdealer spyware or something.

    Overnet is faster for me. I think probably eMule could beat it if my computer was left 24-7. We'll see.

    Newsgroups and IRC take top poo trophy (never tested DC++). Onet is pretty nice too.... i guess i should have tested eMule to be fair but i just couldnt be bothered. (All tests done on a T3 :p)

    Nah i only mentioned the T3 because with a T3 you dont really suffer much from the variability of a cable or dsl line (hence give credit to the claim). My results still concur for when i had DSL and now when i have Cable.

    I never seem to be able to use the FTP stuff lol. And I can't be bothered to get CuteFTP or any other software.

    Well then you are missing out if you cant be bothered. Some of the fastest links and arguably the fastest links available are FTP type links. A lot less overhead than most other techniques simply because it is a direct link.

    I say the Mule is the best but I havent tried Overnet cuz I dont like installing spyware and that .NETframe-thingy...

    ...and for best ftp-client I would say FlashFXP...

    ...and best download-manager is Internet Download Manager...

    ...and best pizza is Ciao-Ciao !!

    CheerZ !

    Toiletman: CuteFTP is a simple FTP client... realistically, there is no such thing as a 'best ftp client' only because ftp clients are a very personal thing.

    Daxx: You dont have to install the spyware.

    Personally, DAP has always done wonders for me. I just delete all the spyware that comes with it and get a huge download boost. Too bad it doesn't work with Kazaa, eMule or Onet. :(

    It is true..edonkey does install some spyware even if you de-select the option on install (there is a thread about this on the edonkey forum)

    I get 57-60 max depending but at the end of the day....why do you think it's called Edonkey..

    Doesn't e-donkey have a cap on d/load speed amyway ?
