Despite it lacks many features we all used to, it's the most promising replacement for spoiled uTorrent and all the ugly/crapy/buggy/bloaty "alternatives" out there. Very lightweight, native looking, actively developed by right people.

The "most promising replacement" is qBittorrent without lacking features. And of course without ads and crashes.

A good BT client:

  • Open source
  • Lightweight
  • Libtorrent based
  • Selective download
  • DHT
  • Multi-language
  • Tiny (8/mbs portable)
  • Info panel
  • 32/64 bits ...

Everything is amazing, simple and easy to look at GUI, downloads torrents very well. The one problem i have with this app is selecting the files in the torrent, it doesn't use the tree view, but uses a more clutered view, which i found hard to locate the files.
