Ares Booster is a plug-in for the Ares chat client that improves speeds and stability when sharing files.

Ares Booster is an add-on for Ares. It doesn’t work as a standalone application, but it's an excellent chat client that also facilitates file sharing via the peer-to-peer protocol. Once installed, you access Ares Booster settings from within the add-on section of the Ares configuration panel. You never access Ares Booster directly. You use Ares as you normally would, and this plugin enhances that experience.

The main reason people use Ares is to share files with their contact list as well as anonymous users; it’s like a torrent client in that sense. While many torrent clients have integrated tools for connection optimization, Ares does not. Some may consider that a fault. However, Ares was designed to be customizable through extensions. The goal is to provide a stable, core experience and to let you personalize that experience as best suits you. There are many different add-ons available for Ares, and Ares Booster is usually one of the most popular.

There are a number of different ways in which Ares Booster enhances your experience. One way it's beneficial in the way it helps through an Internet connection test and assessment. It can provide recommendations or even automatically configure the connection to get optimal or at least near-optimal performance. This automation is particularly useful for casual users who don’t understand the details or don’t want to be bothered with them.

Even with an optimized connection, Ares Booster can work to optimize downloads, and uploads too, as they happen. For instance, it has sensors for bandwidth and latency, and as those values change, it can adjust accordingly. It also provides a number of scheduling options. You may, for example, want to keep Ares running overnight or while you’re at work. Ares Booster can help with that by enabling and disabling certain uploads and downloads based on traffic, time of day and other factors.
