      JohnFastman Transmission is an easy-to-use, open source torrent client. It's an excellent alternative to uTorrent because it is open source, which means you can have higher confidence in it not violating your privacy, e.g. through reporting what you're downloading. Transmission is as good an alternative as qBittorrent, but has a simpler interface.

      Buster_Blue It's FOSS, which means that you can be more confident that it isn't tracking you. It's also easy to use, with a simple UI.

      Lacks the ability to actually create torrents, making it more of a downloader than a full-fledged client.

      Wladrote Coz it's totally FOSS and there's a good Android vers. of it.
      Positive comment over 1 year ago

      BiglyBT is a fork of Vuze with the same rich feature set, plugin support (i.e. webtorrent, decentralized chat, and even TOR), and no ad/malware. Being Java based makes it compatible with most platforms, but resource usage is still light, especially with tweaking.
