Work on Shareaza began in 1998, with the introduction of the first Shareaza in 1999 - slightly after the original Napster.
We were the first to introduce many technologies to the P2P world, such as multi source downloads
(known today as Swarming), effective resumes, video downloads, offline searches and more.
In July 2004, we made history being the first (and thus far the only) file sharing service to announce an agreement with the US major record labels. Today, we
are leading the revolution once again, being the first company to offer authorized file sharing service. This new service blends free file sharing with authorized
content, a vibrant community and more.
