BitTorrent is the official client for the eponymous protocol, peer-to-peer, and it's lightweight and full of features.

Download any type of file

BitTorrent features a search engine to find torrent files – you can also use Bit Che as an alternative – and it incorporates RSS technology, which is used to alert the user to the presence of a new torrent online. For each torrent, the program shows the general download data and information about peers, seeds, and trackers, as well as charts on download and upload speeds.

BitTorrent isn't just used for downloading files (movies, games, documents, videos, MP3 music and other material not covered by copyright), but also for sharing them, letting new torrents be created.

BitTorrent offers several other features, borrowed from uTorrent, including:

A clear and configurable interface

The interface is intuitive, well organized, and has a modern design. From the main screen, you can see theactive and inactive torrents, and the completed downloads, as well as the ability to access the options menu where you can configure all of the settings at the bottom of BitTorrent.

Powerful and lightweight – one of the best pieces of P2P software

BitTorrent, like uTorrent, is among the most popular pieces of file sharing software. It consumes few resources, doesn't weigh your PC down, and rarely freezes.

Ultimately, it's ideal for anyone who is looking for a quality torrent client that's very configurable and can be used for free P2P downloads.

Changes

  • Version 7.6 of BitTorrent has significant changes such as device shifting, streaming, minor UI changes, a health meter (more sophisticated than "availability" but with a simpler UI), a built-in player, remote access and other improvements. All of this is customizable and optional, and has been done while keeping the size profile of the product virtually the same!

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer protocol designed to transfer files. Users connect directly to send and receive portions of a file, while a central tracker coordinates the action of all peers and manages different connections without knowledge of the contents of the files being distributed.

With BitTorrent, users upload at the same time they download, so network bandwidth is managed as efficiently as possible. BitTorrent is designed to work better than other file-transfer protocols as the number of people interested in a certain file increases.
