Details

Tixati is my choice as it runs fast, offers a lot of information, and has the most appealing interface in a very efficient package, RAM and CPU wise.

It always seems to be in active development and the developers are receptive to users input. The wide variety of layout options are indicative of their responsiveness to users.

Tixati has all the features that an average user wants. Their help facilities have grown, but have gotten a bit out of date. Their forums are responsive.

Many users will like the colored display and the many options for display as well as the vast amount of information offered within a program that uses relatively little system resources. The clean install will appeal to all.

Unfortunately, I was surprised to find that Tixati does not support web seeds. Generally not an issue, but there will be an issue with the 3 million torrents at Archive.org as many of those are seeded by web seeds.

Tixati runs on Windows and Linux, and has a portable edition meant to run on USB flash-drives or other portable media.
