Kazaa Lite K++
utdated!Kazaa Lite (sometimes called
'K-Lite') is a Peer-to-Peer File Sharing application that does not contain any 'Spyware'.
In actual fact, it is a modified version of the very popular Kazaa Media Desktop
(often called the 'Original Kazaa' or 'KMD'), which is made by Sharman Networks.
Both programs are very similar, with almost identical features and appearance.
The main difference is that Kazaa Lite has been modified so that it does not
have any of the so-called 'Spyware' and 'Adware' that comes with the Original
Kazaa Lite provides sharing of all kinds of media and software. It is a 'FastTrack'
Client, which means it connects to the FastTrack P2P network system, just like
some other popular file sharing programs like Kazaa, Grokster and iMesh. (And in
the past also Morpheus, which now only connects to the Gnuttella network)
Kazaa Lite can download single files from multiple users to ensure you get the
most efficient use of your bandwidth. They also resumes broken downloads or
downloads that were in progress when you shut down your computer last.
All-in-all, FastTrack is a very good, very powerful P2P system.
The authors of Kazaa Lite were concerned about the fact that the Original Kazaa
contained unwanted third party software and wanted to be able to use it without
that software. So a cleaned up version was made: Kazaa Lite!
Kazaa Lite is not a different program, it's the same program, just without all
the additional software.
On December 7, 2003, the Kazaa Lite K++ project was been shut down by Sharman
