aMule – an eMule-like client for the eD2k and Kademlia networks, supporting multiple platforms. aMule was forked from the xMule project (formely known as lMule) back in September 2003, though now has less and less resemblance to the client that sired it.

Currently aMule (officially) supports a wide variety of platforms and operating systems, being compatible with more than 60 different hardware+OS configurations.

aMule is entirely free, its sourcecode released under the GPL just like eMule, and includes no adware or spyware as is often found in proprietary P2P applications. aMule is built upon the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) toolkit, which enables it to support multiple platforms.

aMule Daemon allows you to run a bare aMule client with no graphical interface and very low CPU and memory usage. Ideal for servers, people who usually control aMule remotely and those who just usually don’t keep taking a look at how far downloads are going.

aMule Remote GUI to control your aMule remotely as if you where in front of it.

aMuleWeb for browser interface and amulwebDLG is a graphical interface to aMuleWeb. They also work both locally and from remote clients. You can control your aMule from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection and a browser, no matter what hardware or operating system you use.

The amulecmd command line interface and amulecmdDLG as a graphical command line interface both allow to remotely control aMule too. All of them work both locally and from remote clients. You can control your aMule remotely from anywhere as if you were in a shell.

Safari – a web browser developed by Apple Inc. based on the WebKit engine and is available for Mac OS X and iOS operating systems.

First released as a public beta on January 7, 2003, on the company’s OS X operating system, it became Apple’s default browser beginning with Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther”. The native browser of iOS is also called Safari, but has a different graphical user interface (GUI) and uses a different WebKit version and application programming interface (API).

A version of Safari for the Microsoft Windows operating system was first released on June 11, 2007, and supported Windows XP Service Pack 2, or later, but it has been discontinued. Safari 5.1.7, released on May 9, 2012, is the last version available for Windows.

Apple’s internet browser, and it is only compatible with Mac computers, iPhones and iPads. It isn’t as versatile as browsers like Firefox and Chrome because it isn’t compatible with other operating systems, which is why it didn’t score high enough to be our top pick. Still, it is fast and easy to use, and it syncs your browser settings across all your Apple devices. However, Safari isn’t as customizable as other web browsers.

Some of Safari goals are:
– Native support for Netflix and plays HTML5 video everywhere it’s available
– Can browse for up to two hours longer than other web browsers
– Stop auto-play videos
– Defending your online privacy and security
– Intelligent Tracking Prevention
– Sandboxing provides built-in protection against malicious code and malware by restricting what websites can do
– Using Private Browsing, Safari doesn’t remember the pages you visit, your search history, or your AutoFill information
– Helps protect you against fraudulent Internet sites and those that harbor malware — before you visit them
– Pay easily and securely with Apple Pay
– Surf seamlessly across all your devices
