Shareaza Turbo Accelerator is a plug-in for Shareaza designed to increase the download speed of files being downloaded through Shareaza's torrent network. Shareaza is software that allows users to download torrent files from the network of computers connected through the software. Files that can be downloaded using the software can be anything from text, video, images, music, and games.
The program allows downloading multiple files at once. When this plug-in is installed, the download speed generally increases. This is made possible by the plug-in's ability to find the easiest path to the connected computer where the source file is. The plug-in is also capable of finding more sources to download a file. It automatically searches for file sources based on the time intervals that the user specifies. Increasing the number of sources gives the user the chance to have options, especially if there is only one source.
Shareaza Turbo Accelerator rests on the system tray. This means that it runs even when there are other active applications on the computer's desktop. Because it is on the system tray, it also loads automatically during startup. The program has the ability to resume paused downloads as well as remove corrupted downloads automatically.
