Basic Information of uTorrent
uTorrent is one of the most popular BitTorrent clients which has been used by millions of users around the world. The free client allows users to find, download, upload and share torrent files easily and quickly. It is compatible with a variety of operating systems, including Microsoft Windows (Windows 7/Vista/XP/8/10), Mac OS, Linux and Android. Although uTorrent is just a client of BitTorrent for Windows, it shares most of the excellent features of BitTorrent including scheduling, bandwidth prioritization, RSS auto-download and BitComet-Mainline DHT. Not only that, uTorrent also supports peer exchange and the protocol encryption joint specification. (Compatible with Vuze/Azureus188.8.131.52 and above & BitComet 0.63 and above)
Unlike many other torrent clients available, uTorrent’s lightweight, fast and powerful function makes this program so popular and perfect. It will never hog your valuable system resources since it’s a little over 1MB (smaller than a digital photo!). In addition, it allows you to download file as quickly and efficiently as possible without slowing down your other online activities. Well, the free program also provides advanced settings such as automatic, scripting, remote management and more. uTorrent’s simplicity makes it particularly suitable for people who have no experience in dealing with torrent files. The search bar and user interface of uTorrent are customizable, which is very convenient for users to search for what they want.
