What Are The Good BitTorrent Software Packages?

August 30, 2007

(Known as both “u-torrent” and “micro torrent”, this is the most popular torrent tool today. uTorrent has all the functions a torrent downloader will ever need, and it only requires 1 MB of hard drive space and memory. uTorrent has all the downloading and seeding performance of its competitors, but with minimal impact to the rest of your computer’s speed.)
January 2007 warning: one About.com reader did report getting a virus after using the uTorrent embedded search engine.

  1. The virus was adware.ZQuest. As you should do with any software you install, please run your anti-virus scanner regularly. To specifically scan the uTorrent software, use Windows Explorer to locate the utorrent.exe file on your C drive (likely C:\program files\utorrent). Once you find utorrent.exe file, right-click it and launch your virus scanner. Gratefully, the vast majority of About readers have not had virus problems with uTorrent.
  2. Azureus
    (A Java language client; was considered “king” of the torrent programs until uTorrent software came along and took that crown away. As with uTorrent and any other software you install, ensure that you virus scan.)
  3. ABC
    (Another very popular Torrent client)
  4. TurboBT
    (Nice-looking GUI appearance with this package)
  5. BitComet
    (Good, but losing popularity to uTorrent and Azureus)
  6. The Original BitTorrent Client
    (Authored by Bram Cohen himself; no fancy GUI here, but it downloads quickly. Recommended for programmer types and Macintosh users)
