The p2p Dark Horse
About seven months ago, you'd typically see four or five different p2p apps named on the Lycos 50 list, says Terra Lycos, which among other things, owns the Lycos search engine.
And up until January, KaZaA (#3) was so dominant in the file- swapping world, "that even though its competitors get searches each week, none of them actually make the list," says the company.

QuickMX says Terra Lycos.
QuickMX v1.1 is a WinMX download tweaker and accelerator which allows unlimited find-sources, handles efficient auto-find-sources for broadband connections, resulting in faster sources finding, and therefore - faster downloads.
"Searches for this program seem to have come out of nowhere, as just two weeks ago it received zero searches," says The Lycos 50, adding, "oddly enough, WinMX searches aren't going up despite the newly found popularity of QuickMX."
Twenty-eighth on the list at the time of writing, it's still climbing.
