Rapidstack searches working Rapidshare downloads in realtime

Rapidstack is an excellent search engine for users who download frequently from - where else - Rapidshare. They claim to filter dead links and return only working downloads, and it worked well in my testing.

Submit your query, and results load below the text box as Rapidstack finds them. Queries can take a little while to execute depending on what you search for, but you're trading a few seconds of waiting patiently for download links that actually work. That's a trade most of us are probably willing to make.

Each filename links to the original URL, and links are also displayed beneath the file name. If you'd rather just head straight for the files, clicking on extract links will open a new tab and produce a plain-text listing of Rapidshare URLs ready to paste into your favorite download manager - like JDownloader.
