As you know, Ares is a well-known P2P file exchange program, that uses the Ultrapeer protocol for greatest efficiency. The Ultrapeer protocol it uses also guarantees low bandwidth consumption. Ares allows you to download from multiple sources, and includes a video and audio replayer, with integrated playlist, and a functional interface for you to manage your shared material, simply and easily, and with your privacy protected. On top of this, Ares will not install any spyware or additional software.
Now the creators have taken a further step with Ares Lite Edition, the "light" version of Ares. Ares Lite Edition keeps all the basic functions of Ares, with the same capabilities (storage, transfers, searching, chat etc), but with slight modifications for a lower CPU and memory use. For these reasons, Ares Lite Edition is ideal for those users with older or less powerful systems.
