Loaded classes

These tests were performed on a MacBook Air, 1.7GHz Intel Core i5, 4Gb 1333 MHz DDR3 of memory running on OSX 10.9.5.

Please Test and compare FrostWire 6 to FrostWire 5 for yourself.

We’d like to invite people passionate about testing software performance and let us know what they find independently.

We’d rather be validated by non related third parties on the fact that FrostWire 6 is a superior file sharing client than its predecessor.
