Ares Booster is an add-on for the Ares client that can increase download speeds across the board.

Ares Booster is an Ares plug-in. It’s not a standalone program and must be used from within the main Ares program. For those unfamiliar with the software, Ares is a chat client as well as a peer-to-peer client in a more general sense. Not only can you use it to chat and share files with people on your contact list, you can use the app to share files via torrents with many different users in an anonymous fashion.

Many torrent clients have built-in mechanisms that optimize downloads. Ares doesn’t, and while this can be considered a shortcoming, Ares is built with extensions in mind. The idea is to provide the core functionality and let the community expand it as they see fit. Ares Booster isn’t the only extension available that boosts Ares downloads, but it is among the most popular.

Ares Booster can enhance your downloads in a number of different ways. For starters, it performs an assessment of your Internet connection, and then automatically adjusts settings in Ares to the optimal values based on that information. This type of auto-configuration is highly useful for novice users who may not know how to configure a torrent client for their network.

This program also helps improve download speeds in real-time. If it senses decreased bandwidth or increased latency, it can make changes on the fly for optimal performance. When your connection returns to normal, it can detect that as well and will restore your original settings. Ares Booster also provides scheduling options, which means that you can leave Ares running unattended and have this program limit or even disable downloads based on time of day or other factors.
