BearShare Turbo Accelerator
BearShare Turbo Accelerator is a very easy to use application designed to increase the transfer speed of the downloads you make through the popular BearShare file sharing tool.
More an add-on and less a stand-alone application, BearShare Turbo Accelerator works exclusively with BearShare and offers just a bunch of options, which makes it the perfect tool for all types of users, be they beginners or more experienced.
Although installation is usually a breeze, pay attention to every single step, as the installer also attempt to drop some unnecessary tools on your computer, while also prompting to change the home page and the search engine of the default browser.
The interface is nothing special, giving you the power to start acceleration with the press of a button. You're allowed however to pick the network interface you're using, in case multiple network adapters are installed on your computer.
Be careful because the program may not work in case you select a different adapter than the one used by BearShare to download files from the Internet!
Additionally, BearShare Turbo Accelerator also lets you configure the check period and the number of downloads you wish to accelerate, while the main window also shows stats such as status and sent and received bytes.
There's no help manual to explain the way BearShare Turbo Accelerator works, but we do know that it resumes broken downloads and clears those downloaded, while also searching for more sources.
Overall, BearShare Turbo Accelerator deserves a chance, despite the fact that we haven't experienced a significant boost during our test. It is however an easy to use tool with a very intuitive interface.
