FilesWire Beta 1.1 Running in Internet Explorer 7
FilesWire was  a Web-based peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) client  for the Java Platform, which uses a combination of the G3 network and the Gnutella network to locate files as well as share files. FilesWire is closed source but can be used directly from the FilesWire website without having to pay a fee or register any user related credentials.
FilesWire is the first notable Web-based P2P file-sharing client. Users are not required to download or install the FilesWire client; instead users start the FilesWire client directly in their browsers and can begin sharing content almost instantly. The most recent release of FilesWire is compatible with all modern java-enabled browsers and written in the Java programming language; FilesWire is able to run on any computer with a Java Virtual Machine installed.
Other features include:
- Support for multi-threaded downloads. (download up to 20 resources at the same time)
- Full Download Manager (view and manage current downloads)
- Integrated Media Player (listen to your downloads direct from the fileswire application)
- Download Preview (preview audio downloads before they are complete)
- Cross Browser Support (i.e., Firefox and Opera are all supported)
- FilesWire does not currently provide multiple source downloads for a single resource. This means if a download is interrupted it most likely will not resume.
- There also appear to be very few movie resources on the network.
