BearShare is a multi-purpose tool that was especially created for music lovers. It has to offer a great deal of features, and it’s completely free. By using BearShare, you are able to search and download various audio tracks from the Internet, manage your music collection, play songs and videos, and also burn audio tracks on CD.

I was really surprised to see how many tools were included in BearShare. You can use the search tool to find any music file shared by other BearShare users. You can customize the search in many ways in order to get accurate results. The program is able to quickly download any song that you desire. It should be mentioned that when it comes to videos, you can only play them in the included player. You won’t be able to download them.

BearShare also offers you access to a social network especially created for music lovers. You can easily meet other BearShare users and share your favorite songs.

Whenever you create a music playlist, you can use the integrated disc burner to copy it on a CD. It is a useful and handy tool that will save you precious time, as you will no longer need to use additional software for the job.

During the setup process, BearShare offers you to install additional software that is not needed for the program to function properly. Yet this drawback is quite small if compared to the large number of features offered by the program. You should really give it a try.
