Read the terms of use before you install. If you accept, the app sets default search engines and home pages for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. It also includes "search assistants" from Firefox and Chrome.

You'll need to uninstall and manually reset your browsers. No install/remove pkg.

I recommend you do not install this application.

To Bram and team: you can do better.

I use to use this when it was simple and fast. It now has Ads and asks to many download this and that at installation. I tried vuze and it was okay but in the end Halite was really good.

Contains MALWARE

The Bittorrent installer also installs various malware to your computer. These are PUPs (potentially unwanted programs), such as Spigot and various extensions. It also alters some of your browsers settings. I immediately uninstalled this junk application and the PUPs that came with it. This will not stand. Stay clear of this application at all costs.

It is great, gotta say it. Fast. I'd just implement the searching for torrents function that should be built-in, anyway i guess they have their reasons why they didn't.

BitTorrent (along with µTorrent) are probably the best bittorrent client.

However it is equipped with ads. But you can disable ads by changing the configuration.

Another big problem is when I download with high speed, the BitTorrent (and µTorrent) use too much CPU resources. The other open source bittorrent client such as qBittorrent/Deluge use very low CPU when downloading at very high speed.

I'm suspicious BitTorrent/µTorrent use these CPU resource to mine CryptoCurrencies or doing other malicious thing.

This is the worst torrent-client, powered by greed. On December, 2018 is just an ad-overloaded crap machine (cheap ad banners!) without any capability to load torrents properly. NOT recommended.
