A fast and feature-packed torrent client.

Free, but ad-supported torrent client software, reviewed by Felix Cheng

uTorrent 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.

uTorrent 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. uTorrent 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. uTorrent is also one of the fastest clients when it comes to download speed. Like any other good torrent client, uTorrent 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 minimalist 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 minimalist 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.
