Review article: 

Best Free BitTorrent Client

Pros: 

Same as µTorrent above as they are identical bittorrent clients. Excellent speeds on torrents, efficient and stable client with a large amount of features packed into a tiny package. Excellent help resources. Streaming capability

Cons: 

Same µTorrent above, except that BitTorrent is not accepted at most private torrent sites. Has had critical security alerts at Secunia. (though none on this version). Recent versions of µTorrent have been in disfavor at many private sites, supposedly for reporting to the tracker issues. Spigot toolbar offered during install along with home page and search engine changes. Software offers from Open Candy.

Product type: 

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer
