A review of uTorrent by Felix Cheng
ÂµTorrent 3 is the result of trying to keep this tiny Bit Torrent client small while adding several new features and working on the product under the hood. The team calls the new features "insanely powerful", we can't help but agree.
ÂµTorrent is the brainchild of the team over at BitTorrent, Inc and has become one of the most (if not the most) downloaded Bit Torrent client on the web of all time. ÂµTorrent can thank its success over the last couple of years because of the lightweight aspect of the program that just makes it work really well without crashing or causing slowdowns.
Slowdowns? No way. ÂµTorrent is also one of the fastest clients when it comes to download speed. Like any other good torrent client, ÂµTorrent also does well with uploading speeds and overall does a great job of traffic management. Users of the client are also able to use prioritizing and put any files they want to the front of the line.
The client also recently underwent a major overhaul and the new version sports a new and minimalistic look. We thought the older versions we minimal, but the upgrade provides access to several new features such as social networking (sharing comments and ratings), feature hiding (making it even more minimalistic in appearance), a portability mode and some improvements on stability.
Though the client has always been tiny and lightweight, they have even managed to bring in some improvements to the client with regards to speed and web seeding adding to the already impressive reliability of the client.uTorrent features and highlights:
- Streaming: Watch videos within seconds with progressive downloads %u2013 no need to wait. Especially great for previewing a file before committing to the full download.
- Remote Access: Start, stop, and monitor torrent downloads on the go. Access your client from any Web browser, or download our Android app.
- Ratings and Comments: Leverages the collective wisdom of the community to ensure the quality and security of downloaded torrents.
- Feature Hiding: Minimizing parts of the ÂµT interface with a click.
- Portable Mode: Run your ÂµTorrent client directly from a USB key and take it with you anywhere.
- Stability etc.: ÂµTorrent 3 also offers under-the-hood improvements including a focus on stability as well as improved Web seeding to add speed and reliability to the process of finding the original source of a single-source file.
