Sharing files over the Internet using torrents is quite popular and there are a few dedicated applications that can facilitate the file transfer. Such a BitTorrent client is uTorrent, a well-known program that ranks high among its peers.

Ad-supported installation and straightforward GUI

This tool comes with loads of useful features and is very easy to use. Even if the installation does not last very long, you should pay close attention to the third-party software included as it may change the settings of your web browser.

uTorrent will greet you with a very nice and simple interface, designed to provide you quick access to its main functions. Thus, you’ll be able to start new downloads, pause, stop or delete the existing ones, or manage the files you’ve already downloaded straight from the main window.

Subscribe to RSS feeds, adjust speed limits, and look for items from the main window

The application enables you to quickly find new content to download using a powerful built-in search function. The RSS capability is another great feature of uTorrent as it allows the user to subscribe to selected feeds for auto-downloading files.

uTorrent also comes with a configurable bandwidth scheduler, speed limiters and multi-language support to make sure you will be able to use it in every corner of the world.

Run downloads when the PC is idle

But perhaps the most impressive thing about uTorrent is the way it manages to handle downloads without slowing down Windows. We found that out during our tests where it performed flawlessly and the stress on system resources was minimal.

And if that doesn’t convince you to give uTorrent a chance, you should note that it is also able to download the selected content only when you’re away from the computer. It does that thanks to a special function for pausing the torrents when user activity is detected.

Conclusion

All things considered, it is safe to say that uTorrent remains a heavyweight player in its category, having millions of users worldwide to emphasize that. With a complete feature pack, great ease of use and seamless integration with any system, this software is definitely a keeper for anyone who uses torrents to share files.
