Comments about qBittorrent as a Alternative to µTorrent
After uTorrent pulling all kinds of crap, I decided to switch over to qBit. It's basically what uTorrent was back in the day. Neither does it have ads and supports wide range of configuration. If you to get as far as you can from commercialism, this is it.15
qBittorrent is really good. Just a solid program. I tried a bunch a few years ago. There might've come new and better alternatives since then - but either way, qBittorrent is good and will serve you well.4
Nice UI on Qt6 + Theme support0
It is a free and open source torrent client that has a built in search engine. unlike utorrent it has no ads and no spyware.2
Almost every aspect is better than uTorrent. Exception: no tag drag&drop :(0
Transmission has the features you expect in a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web-based interface, peer exchange, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, web seed support, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

Fast, light and no ads. Why would u use something else? Works perfectly2
best all-around for multiple os3
no native windows client.-2
All Windows clients are awful, but this is well-ported from *nix.0
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.1

Free Download Manager FeaturesWarning
The official website was distributing a spyware-infected version of the Linux client for years. It's no longer safe to trust the developer's application. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/free-download-manager-site-redirected-linux-users-to-malware-for-years/

aria2 can download a file from multiple sources/protocols and tries to utilize your maximum download bandwidth. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while.
Comments about aria2 as a Alternative to µTorrent
Sadly no uTP, and initially must connect to trackers or configure DHT entry points to know DHT peers. Still good, though0
lightweight, full featured0
BiglyBT is a feature filled, open source, bittorrent client based on the Azureus open source project, now Vuze .
Comments about BiglyBT as a Alternative to µTorrent
Coz it's totally FOSS and there's a good Android vers. of it.0
Laggy, bad programming using operating system windows to search metadata for magnets, will kill your system when pasting too many magnets.0
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.0
