Î¼Torrent is a small and incredibly popular BitTorrent client.Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in Î¼Torrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Î¼Torrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources â€“ typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it werenâ€™t there at all.
Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. Î¼Torrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language.
The developer puts in a lot of time working on features and making things more user-friendly. Releases only come out when theyâ€™re ready, with no schedule pressures, so the few bugs that appear are quickly addressed and fixed.
