Internet Explorer (formerly: Microsoft Internet Explorer, MSIE) – a web browser, a product of the American company Microsoft. Internet Explorer in a Windows version is developed on base of the Mosaic code purchased from Spyglass. The program was officially presented on August 23, 1995.

Up to version 6, Internet Explorer was a set of three modules – a web browser, e-mail program and news reader. The last two modules were in the form of one program called Outlook Express. An important feature of Internet Explorer is the open nature of the program, thanks to which third companies can create so-called plugins that extend the functionality of the browser.

Internet Explorer is developed only in a version for MS Windows operating system, there were also versions for other platforms – including Mac OS and Mac OS X (based on Tasman engine, in 2003 the development of IE for these systems was discontinued) and Solaris and HP-UX (discontinued in 2001).

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.
