Review & Alternatives: Best Free BitTorrent Client

Pros & Cons:

Excellent speeds on torrents, efficient and stable client with a large amount of features packed into a tiny package. Excellent help resources. Streaming capability.
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.

Our Review:

µTorrent has been top pick here in the past and is still a superior bittorrent client. With the excellent results on the test torrents, the fact that it is a stable and low resource using client and the vast amount of features packed into this tiny program, this is a top flight bittorrent program.

The support provided by µTorrent's FAQs, guides and forums is excellent, though it has diminished a bit from past years.

Streaming to devices capability has been added in recent releases. µTorrent does try to foist a toolbar, home page change, search engine change and a software download during install. Recent versions of µTorrent have been in disfavor at many private sites, supposedly for reporting to the tracker issues.

µTorrent has become by far and away the most popular bittorrent client due to its small, efficient, feature filled package.

Caution: Spigot toolbar offered during install along with home page and search engine changes. Software offers from Open Candy.

Comments

Your rating of uTorrent is wrong. It is Adware. Worse, the ads are videos, eating into my limited bandwidth. One has to pay an annual ransom to get rid of the ads.
