For uTorrent, BitTorrent and other torrent client users, try Vuze. It’s much more advanced, feature rich, easy to use cross-platform client with good GUI. And what’s more, it’s free and open source too. Just give Vuze a try.
It’s a Java application. You must install Java on your machine before you start using it.
Advanced users might want to install ‘Mainline DHT’ plugin for Vuze for even better download speeds.
For those who don’t know, Mainline DHT plugin integrates the DHT protocol used in uTorrent and BitTorrent to Vuze. Vuze has its own DHT feature. But that DHT is incompatible with uTorrent/BitTorrent clients. With this plugin, you can have both types of DHT in one single client! It’s another feature that I love in Vuze. There are lots of useful features like this in Vuze.
Update: Nowadays, Azureus Software, Inc. the makers of Vuze, gives out web-installer through their website for Windows users. If you want a standalone installer, visit their project hosting page at SourceForge.
SourceForge highlights the web-installer under the headline ‘Looking for the latest version?’. Don’t choose it. Instead, browse the folders and choose the installer with file size 5 MiB or above.
The benefits of choosing standalone installer over a web-installer is already discussed in my previous Google Chrome post at here: https://www.robinmathewrajan.com/ramblings/google-chrome-64-bit-exits-beta-stable-version-officially-available-for-free-download/
