Some good things you have to work for, and Grouper is one of those things. First-time visitors to the site should prepare to do a little browsing and a lot of reading. This site isn't one where you surf right in and start uploading. But, as our 40 out of 40 "other stuff" rating shows, that shouldn't discourage you – Grouper has lots of goodies.
Though it looks a bit messy, Grouper is a one-stop shop for media sharing and media file management. Yes, you have to download some software and take it for a spin, but the functionality and the P2P network backing it up are well worth the few minutes invested.
We dinged Grouper slightly for its limit on file sizes only because it has a 110-Mbyte cutoff for uploads to its site. But keep in mind, though, its software connects users to a P2P network, so once you've mastered that – and found a few friends to use the thing – there's really no limit to the amount of media you can share, be it photos, videos, music, or files.
Not bad for a site named for a fish.
