FastTrack Accelerator (also known as Speed Up) starts up
KaZaA (if not started yet) and connects to it. Then it will continiously try to "find more sources" for your download list, thus increasing your download speeds and helping you "beat" the queue.

When you right-click on an item in the download screen of KaZaA,
you can 'search for more sources'. KaZaA will then search for more users
from which it can download that file. This usually speeds up your downloads.

The FTA tool automates that for you by running alongside your FastTrack client and every few minutes it automatically searches for more sources.

FTA can be of the most benefit for those times when you are away from your computer, so KaZaA/kazaalite etc., will always be on the lookout for alternative sources.

The current version is 1.3.1 (10/21/02).
A prior version is also bundled with kazaalite v2.0
or can be downloaded separately at:
