FrostWire for Mac6.9.5

04 September 2021

Open-Source BitTorrent search tool.

What is FrostWire for Mac

FrostWire performs a smart search upon the most relevant torrent search results that come from BitTorrent search engines, meaning it remembers every file contained by every torrent it scans, increasing greatly the odds of finding what you are looking for, super-fast.

As FrostWire fetches search results from the search engines, it uses these results to crawl the Azureus DHT to learn about the contents indexed by these torrents. FrostWire will not use the bandwidth of the search engines in this process; it will only use the torrent info hash to perform DHT queries, meaning .torrent files are fetched only from the DHT, not from the search engines' Web servers. Its search power will not depend upon a central entity.

FrostWire is also capable of downloading directly from cloud sources [YouTube, Soundcloud], has a full file library and file player built in. There's also an Android app that can transfer files easily [on Wi-Fi] between their Macs and their phones using the FrostWire application.

Note: While the software is classified as freeware, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

I have been using Frostwire for years and have been happy, However, I launched Frostwire this morning and it notified me that there was an update available. So I clicked update and it proceeded to download the App which was about 50mb. (Twice as large as the normal download) I then was prompted to run the installer which I did. Al of a sudden I was notified by Drive Genius that there was am addition to my startup items and that Mackeeper had been installed. Also a larger window opened up and wanted to perform a MacKeeper scan. I removed the software immediately and will no longer use Frostwire again. Any software that installing MacKeeper without asking for permission is deplorable. Be aware of the update to new version feature.

Google Chrome now flags this site as a MALWARE provider. I emailed the developer and they were very defensive about it. "We've always had adware inside the app. It's just Google is saying we're distributing it." Personally, it's a lot cleaner than Vuze. I downloaded 6.1 anyway, despite the Chrome warning.

Well it's far from being perfect, but I could find some rare old stuff not re-released on CD, thanks to it! Browsing Youtube and extracting the audio for you is definitely a great feature! Bad things: weird behaviour if you resize the window, and crashes on quit. Actually, I seem to have found a little trick to avoid crash on quit: close the main window first then quit! ;-)

I think I am first here to give it 5 stars! But oh well! I am not a super savvy torrent person, but I get the concept. My objective is to download what I want, the easiest & fastest way possible. I like that FrostWire let's me download just a few files from a big torrent. I like that I can download from YouTube and Soundcloud too! I like that I first get to search and then narrow down my search results by audio or video or torrent. I like that all my music goes directly to iTunes, although I do find myself using the FrostWire player more often [still little buggy] --- I don't like the chat - feels like something I would use in high school 10 years ago! I don't like that the software closes for a long time. But I guess these are not a big deal.

Wow, I didn't know people were still using bittorrent. There are far better ways to get whatever movie or file you want without the risk of being sued and without relying on the snail slow speeds of seeding. There isn't a single Bluray movie I don't have access to without using this old, slow & insecure torrent protocol. Am I bragging? You betcha!

It's fine for what it does, but without encryption control, stay away from this thing. Use Vuse (with manually forcing it off public channels) or Transmission (with full encryption and manually searched torrents).

I seem to remember LimeWire and FrostWire both being Gnutella clients. I guess it makes sense to become BitTorrent clients, as that is the only peer-to-peer file sharing system with any kind of claim to having a legitimate purpose.

I'm a former Limewire Pro user, who switched to Frostwire when I got tired of paying for the privilege of faster downloads, and who was still using a PPC machine, which Limewire had abandoned. Frostwire has never let me down. While torrents are more efficient for larger downloads of entire albums, when all you want to to hear is that one catchy or obscure song (particularly those that are often out of print), Frostwire is the way to go. And for those who are wondering, yes, I buy my music legally from various sources, including iTunes, Amazon, and cool record stores like Amoeba and Rasputin. I use Frostwire as more of a preview service or listening station, so that I can hear certain songs in their entirety first and determine whether I want to buy them. Even with the growth of streaming services such as Grooveshark, there are still things you can find via the p2p networks like Gnutella that can't be found elsewhere. That's why Frostwire is still a valuable tool for me. Also, to the people who have been trashing Frostwire as useless in comparison to torrents, make note of this entry on the Frostwire blog, in regards to the 4.20.6 release: http://frostwire.wordpress.com "Now FrostWire's BitTorrent engine has been entirely replaced and features all the power of a lightweight version of the Azureus BitTorrent Core under the hood. Not only all the prior issues our users reported with torrents are gone, but downloading torrents with FrostWire is faster than ever. Torrent Bootstrapping has also significantly improved and in some cases the average download speeds are even 3x faster than with our previous torrent technology. The introduction of gnutella based .torrent file search with our last release clearly stated our direction, a truly decentralized P2P network with the best of the BitTorrent and Gnutella networks."

Garbage peddled by scare mongerers So what ever happen to all the lies that Frostwire claimed would destroy Limewire and the reason they split off the from Limewire project to make this copycat second rate software? Frostwire has always been and always will be a pale imitation of Limewire! Long live Gnutella. Oh wait, the network is virtually dead and filled with fakes and virus. Long live P2P. Oh wait, that's no good either because your IP can be seen and you can be sued for copyright infringement. I think it time to put to rest all these P2P programs that openly broadcast IP addresses. Big brother is watching very closely!

This version works fine on my 10.6.3 MacBookPro. As far as the usefulness of it: Yes, there are much better programs for Bittorrent (Transmission, uTorrent, Vuze). But for Gnutella this is a very good program, one I find better than Phex, Cabos or Acqlite, and I've spent time using them all. Gnutella is still useful for finding smaller individual files, and can be used safely if one is careful-leaving outgoing shares on 24/7 with no firewall or IP filtering is unwise, and don't download executables. Most virus results are obvious (size, name, extension) and will only infect a PC anyway. I rate it strictly for its usefulness connecting to and downloading from Gnutella. That it does quite well for me, even behind a firewall.

But so far frostwire has managed to download torrents, and every other thing that I needed it to do quite successfully.

Rubbish. The only people using this these days are the RIAA, collecting data on the idiots that use it, and idiot spammers and bot spreaders. Put in ANY search term you like, you will find a file approx' 6kb containing a trojan or exploit. If you want to get caught filesharing, this is the app to do it with. Almost all of the high profile cases where oxygen thieves are being sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars by the RIAA or whoever, were caught on this system. I would warrant that the anti-filesharing & copyright lobbies are actually happy people are still using this turkey, as it provides a steady supply of fresh meat for the music industry scare machine.

And for torrents we've got the great and lean and fast Transmission and uTorrent apps on the Mac instead of this Java behemoth FrostWire/LimeWire. And even BitTorrent is slowly dying, everybody is going to upload websites like Rapidshare these days.

No problems whatsoever with version 4.18.5 on my OS X 10.5.8 Leopard system, and I've heard this version is fine on Snow Leopard as well. So ignore my ranting about version 4.18.4 :) Gets the job done, full of features, easy to use, and I've run it for hours with no crashes. All the other file-sharing programs I've tried are either unstable, minimal and lacking features, don't get many results, or have become so dated they barely run correctly.

I'm rather disappointed with this app. I thought it would be a viable alternative to Limewire and it's really not. I have a MacBook Pro, 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and it was using up 112% of my CPU! It was taking more processor power than Photoshop and almost as much RAM! On top of that, it keeps detecting an non-existant firewall and dropping all downloads to 0 KBps. I don't know what the benefit of this app is to Limewire but as it is I just don't see one.

If you are using Limewire and then run this program and choose to go back to Limewire then your incomplete downloads are lost. I saw nothing better about this and was extremely annoyed to find out it messed up the incomplete downloads. I see nothing better about this versus Limewire. AVOID

The new version seems to suffer from a huge memory leak (I mean HUGE).

Why we have a lot of gnutella clients (Acqlite, Cabos, Acquisition, Limewire, etc.) and none for the faster gnutella2 network?

Nice idea, I'm glad they remember that the gnutella project is a public thing, not private (or based on stolen code *cough* *cough* Aquisition)

I've given it a go and it picked up my incompleted Lwire downloads and resumed them so that confirms it's Lwire in a different guise.However, BE WARNED: If you start this up and have incomplete LW downloads, and then decide you don't like it and switch back to LW, LW will not be able to resume your incomplete downloads. Then if you think your stuck with Frostwire, because you've opened LW after trying Frostwire, Frostwire won't be able to resume them either. Put simply, even though it's the same program it seems to corupt or break its link to incomplete downloads if you open one then the other, then the other again. Confused. Give this a go after completing current Lwire downloads.

Why bother? Use Acqlite, Cabos, Acquisition or anything but Lamewire and it's sidekick Frosty the goofball...they both pretty much suck the same way.

well, its the same exact thing as limewire. i downloaded it expecting maybe some sort of GUI improvement, but nope, its exactly the same. sorry, its no improvement over Limewire, so ill be sticking with that for now. throw on a new GUI, then maybe ill switch.

Where'd this come from. Why is it 4.9.33 all of a sudden. Is this just Limewire dressed up to look like something else to avoid detection by the RIAA police.

It's basically limewire with frost. I couldn't tell the difference between the two.
