I discovered μTorrent today. I’ve been using Azureus because it has the largest support community and it’s open source, but I hate Java and its heavy resource usage (100-120MB on average for me). I’m always on the lookout for a better client.
I found it in μTorrent. It’s a minimalist program, combining UI elements of G3/Rufus, Azureus, and ABC, but it’s coded completely in C/C++. It’s not open-source, but it is freeware.
But the best thing is how lightweight the client is. I’m running three torrents right now, two under 100MB and one at about 350MB, and my total memory usage is 2.2MB. Yes, you read that right. And it’s goddamn fantastic. I’m so happy I could splooge.
