Ares Galaxy vs FileCroc
The Ares free download we provide on our website is well known around the world for what it does, it’s one of the most popular pieces of P2P software available to date and is known by nearly everyone who work with these on a regular basis. However, due to the fact that it is open source allowing anyone to change and distribute the source code as they like, it has meant that a number of pieces of software have been developed based on the code for our tool. One of these is called FileCroc, which is based on it and has a lot of the same features too. In this article, we’re going to compare the two so that you know whether to stick to the original software or use this alternative one.
The first thing we need to compare is the layout and GUI. As you would expect, they are largely the same. The navigation for all of the different features is exactly the same so you still have the great tabular layout amongst both pieces of software, although FileCroc has implemented a few different icons to try and make it their own. However, some of the key design elements that makes ours so well known have been removed and this is really obvious once you’ve installed both of them and are running them. For this reason, we have to say that most users would prefer to use the one we provide instead of FileCroc based on design elements so we must state that ours has the upper hand when it comes to this.
Another thing we could compare these two pieces of software on is the number of users both P2P tools have. This is an incredibly important point to make even if you aren’t sure why. The more users the software has, the more files will be in the network. It also means there’ll be more sources to download files from which would increase the speeds you get when you’re using it. Trying to use a software with not many users would be incredibly difficult because of the poor file transfer speeds you’d get and this is certainly a point we can highlight with FileCroc. Our P2P client has millions of users all around the world which gives it the upper hand, there are billions of files in the network all of which are free for you to download whenever you want. FileCroc isn’t as popular and therefore doesn’t give you the same access that our program and download technology does.
Extra features are also an important part of a P2P software. One of these in particular is the chat features included. Most tools will not be able to offer this but it is a well known fact that our tool includes great support for chatting to other users in the network in the form of thousands of different chatrooms available for you instantly. FileCroc takes a fairly similar approach, giving you the same access because of the code being based on the same thing. However, it isn’t quite the same because of the fact that it was built for our Ares download and you can really tell this when using it, FileCroc is fairly buggy and doesn’t always complete the tasks as you would like them to. We think that the original is even better in this regard, too.
In conclusion, after analysing some of the major components of Ares Galaxy and the FileCroc software, the best of the two is very clear no matter which way you look at it. If you’re considering which one to use, we would highly recommend that you install the client we offer onto your computer. Not only will the download speeds you get be quicker and much more reliable, but the user base is significantly bigger and the features work much better than you would find in FileCroc. For this reason, it’s a good idea to go ahead and install it now if this is what you’re looking for. Our software will never let you down so go ahead and join the community now.
