    I use BitComet.
    Grab the source code quickly and start developing your own eMule
    You can find the source code here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/e...7b-Sources.zip

    Hmm... wait.

    It seems I was an unsuspecting victim of site cloning. www.emule.org gets you to a payed emule client that has nothing to do with the real one. http://www.emule-project.net is the real site.

    I had a few problems with emule recently and had it uninstalled. Now when trying to grab it again I went to the wrong site.

    So... for clarification in case someone takes this the wrong way, emule is not asking for money.

    I've always used ABC since it's the first one I tried. After seeing this eMule, ABC looks a bit inferior

    hmm... emule is not for bittorrent, fellas. It's for edonkey. I only use it as a backup for bittorrent (usually when i can't find what i'm looking for under bittorrent).

    The most popular Bittorent client for Mac at least (but also available for Windows) is Azureus. I think the idea of a Bittorent client built right into the web browser is an awesome idea.... Opera already has it, and I think there's one for Firefox available as a plugin.

    Firefox is great...
    Mario F., I just noticed that if you just write "emule" to the address bar, FireFox opens the right webpage.

    The BT client for Opera kind of sucks, though.
