With over 70 million unique monthly users, the software is downloaded hundreds of thousands of times every day and boasts millions of active users at any given moment. LimeWire uses the BitTorrent protocol and the Gnutella network to provide an unparalleled searches and download speed to the user. As always, LimeWire takes the security of its users very seriously and will never bundle spyware, adware, or viruses.
