More about Flame

Since the software has been added to our selection of software and apps in 2006, it has managed to obtain 2,907 downloads, and last week it gained 0 downloads.

About the download, Flame is a software that will require less free space than many software in the category Internet software.

The software version is 0.21 and the latest update was on 9/04/2006. It's available for users with the operating system Mac OS X and previous versions, and you can download it only in English.

If you've ever wondered what's going on behind the scenes on your network, then Flame can show you. Bonjour has been described as "no-pain networking". If you've ever used iTunes and seen shared libraries popping up without having to configure anything, then you'll know that it really is painless. That's not to say that it's perfect. If you see someone's sharing their music, how do you see if they're also sharing photos with iPhoto?

Just start Flame to see all the computers on the network that are advertising services. (If it can, it'll identify the user of each computer instead of giving you the machine's name.) Disclose the services available from each. You can even delve right into the service record to see the gory details, if you like that sort of thing.

Unlike existing browsers, which group by service, Flame groups by the machine they're on. This means that you can see the links between services; "Tom's Music" is being shared by the iChat user "Tom", who also has an iPhoto library, "My Holiday Snaps", and a web server. No need to wonder who's doing what any more.
