Following the last week that uTorrent will become ad-supported (and despite the subsequent on forced ads), some BitTorrent users have been reconsidering their options. In response to reader requests for information on other clients, here are ten alternatives to µTorrent for windows (in alphabetical order). BitComet v1.33 We begin with perhaps the most controversial of all torrent clients.
BitComet has been accused of many negative things in the past, but most were. However, the one universally annoying aspect of BitComet – – is still there, and is the default setting when creating torrents. For torrent downloads it is an acceptable client but by no means the best. On one of our test torrents BitComet could not find or connect to any peers, so your mileage may vary in everyday usage. On the plus side, the optional eMule integration could help resuscitate some torrents, assuming you can find a working eMule server that is. On the downside it was one of the heaviest clients on our test system. BitComet also serves advertising links.
