Before torrents and yet similar to them there was Kazaa. Kazaa Lite is a slightly more modern (but still fairly aged) piece of software that provides the Kazaa network with none of the infamous malware or software restrictions. Though few people still use Kazaa today K-Lite as it was known runs and still does see some use.

No restrictions for good or ill

Kazaa Lite has the distinction of being an unsupported application from the early 2000s. This means that there really aren't many people who will tell you how to use it and you can pick and choose which modern updates you use without worrying about incompatibility. But it also means you have to do some of your own work to use it. Kazaa Lite by itself won't run on modern operating systems for example.

Niche but good

Overall that makes Kazaa Lite worth using for users who want a more out-of-the-way file-sharing experience who are looking for specific things and will try everywhere to find them and who have the patience to deal with its small number of users and the blemishes that it's shown over time. In other words if you're a power user looking to get access to everything that's out there on the web the Kazaa network is still running and in use.

KaZaA Lite is a new FastTrack Client. This is cleaned version of Kazaa Media Desktop. Both programs are very similar, with almost identical features and appearance. The main difference is that KaZaA Lite has been modified so that it does not have any of the spyware, adware and advertising usually included in Kazaa Media Desktop. Along with the removal of all spyware, adware and advertising, many features have been added to provide more extensive functionality.

Most of this added functionality is provided by the K++ loader and the KL Extensions plug- in. Kazaa Lite Revolution supports Magnetic and Sig2Dat Links so that you can download verified files, no fakes! It adds many features missing from the offical KMD client, such as an intelligent download accelerator, auto- search more, fake file analyzer, IP blocker, and a fresh new look.

Kazaa Lite also contains some very handy tools as well as neutralising all ad and spyware. What makes K-Lite better is that it contains no spyware, adware or advertising. But also a lot of extra functionality has been added. KHancer is the main part of K-Lite and adds most of the extra functionality and is also 100% intergrated into the Kazaa interface, meaning there's no other windows open like other Kazaa addons. The new Kazaa Lite Start Page now features various search options and links that users will find useful, also in search section is a site with verified links and tips on searching.
