"MUTE File Sharing is a new peer-to-peer network that provides easy search-and-download functionality while also protecting your privacy.
MUTE File Sharing compiles as a fast, native application for many platforms (no Java, no Python, etc.).
MUTE protects your privacy by avoiding direct connections with your sharing partners in the network. Most other file sharing programs use direct connections to download or upload, making your identity available to spies from the RIAA and other unscrupulous organizations." --MUTE
