BitTorrent provides an easy way to share large files over the internet and the protocol has very quickly gained a huge worldwide following. The low cost of distribution means that BitTorrent is popular with many software publishers, while users benefit from faster downloads and access to a massive range of content. There are scores of torrent clients to choose from, but uTorrent is one of the smallest and fastest available.

The skinnable interface of the program is easy to navigate and features the option to integrate RSS feeds from your favourite torrent sites. Simple controls are available to start, pause and cancel downloads, and speed limiting options can be used to ensure that when seeding completed downloads, your connection is not saturated to an extent that download speeds are adversely affected.

Scheduling can be used to place limits on upload and download speeds at different times of day. This is helpful if your ISP has different usage limits for on- and off-peak hours. You can schedule downloads to trickle in slowly during the day to keep within your monthly transfer limit as well as ensuring that your internet connection is still useable for other purposes, while letting them run at full speed at night when your connection is not needed for anything else and fewer usage restrictions are in place.

A web interface makes it possible to control your torrents from any computer with an internet connection and completed downloads can be automatically moved to a folder of your choice. uTorrent is an excellent example of 'pick up and play' software, with virtually no learning curve and excellent performance.

Note that this is the Mac version of uTorrent, which somewhat lags behind the Windows version.

uTorrent for Mac 1.8.7 new features include:

- Stability improvements

Verdict:

One of the fastest and easiest ways to download and manage torrents.
