uTorrent is a light client from BitTorrent that uses fewer resources than others of its sort. This simple .exe file contains a powerful app for downloading files in .torrent format with greater speed and reliability than other P2P programs like Emule. Even while occupying little space and consuming few resources, the program remains an excellent tool for downloading all sorts of files using the BitTorrent protocol. The app itself includes a search bar in the upper right corner that lets you find all the latest torrents, although you can also download these file containers from other places on the Internet and add them to uTorrent yourself later.
It’s also compatible with so-called magnet links, that is, links around the web that you can click on to directly open your download client and add to your downloads list, meaning you won’t have to download any files straight to your computer. This, in turn, reduces the chance of stumbling on malicious software.
uTorrent’s features speak for themselves: simultaneous downloads of multiple files, the option to limit the bandwidth consumption for the full program or each torrent, rapid restart of interrupted downloads, and the ability to select what you want to download from a pack of several files. Plus, uTorrent supports downloads of syndicated content via RSS feeds. In other words, you can subscribe to special feeds to download certain torrents regularly.
