uTorrent is one of the most popular free BitTorrent clients out there for several reasons: it’s fast, lightweight, easy to use and very efficient. It’s also available for Android, Mac and it has a portableversion.
uTorrent is a light client from BitTorrent that uses fewer resources than others of its sort. This simple .exe file contains a powerful app for downloading files in .torrent format with greater speed and reliability than other P2P programs like Emule. Even while occupying little space and consuming few resources, the program remains an excellent tool for downloading all sorts of files using the BitTorrent protocol. The app itself includes a search bar in the upper right corner that lets you find the all the latest torrents, although you can also download these file containers from other places on the Internet and add them to uTorrent yourself later.
It’s also compatible with so-called magnet links, that is, links around the web that you can click on to directly open your download client and add to your downloads list, meaning you won’t have to download any files straight to your computer. This in turn reduces the chance of stumbling on malicious software.
uTorrent’s features speak for themselves: simultaneous downloads of multiple files, the option to limit the bandwidth consumption for the full program or each torrent, rapid restart of interrupted downloads, and the ability to select what you want to download from a pack of several files. In addition, uTorrent supports downloads of syndicated content via RSS feeds. In other words, you can subscribe to special feeds to download certain torrents regularly.
Features of uTorrent
uTorrent includes everything you would expect from a complete, reliable torrent downloader: highly detailed stats, support for RSS feeds, automatic shutdown, download scheduler and more. There are a couple things that uTorrent is missing though: a full torrent search tool and a built-in player to preview your downloads.
