BitTorrent icon Multi-platform and free client for the popular BitTorrent protocol, very easy-to-use and compact, yet powerful and feature rich.

BitTorrent is a free and cross-platform client for the popular BitTorrent protocol. The application is very easy-to-use and compact, yet powerful and feature rich.

What sets it apart from other BitTorrent clients, though, is the fact that it incorporates tons of features within a lightweight package, and puts a small footprint on your computer's resources.

As one might expect, BitTorrent comes with all the standard features of the well-known peer-to-peer protocol. Some of them include scheduling, bandwidth prioritization, Protocol Encryption, joint specification and RSS auto-downloading.

Downloading torrents with BitTorrent is a very simple procedure. Once you've acquired the .torrent file, you can simply double-click on it or drag and drop it onto the main interface to start the download.

BitTorrent's main window consists of a left sidebar that displays all / downloaded / completed and other torrents, the torrent status panel and the tab with information about general details, trackers, files, peers and speed. The main window is highly intuitive and follows the layout pattern of most well-known BitTorrent clients.

What's more, the client comes with a rich Preferences window that enables you to configure all of BitTorrent's internal settings. From this window, you can adjust settings regarding the bandwidth, directories, network, scheduler, remote, and paired devices.

In addition to this, the application provides multiple skins and replacements for the icons, toolbar graphics, as well as status icons. If your language is not supported, you can easily add your own or improve existing translations.

All in all, the BitTorrent client is a mature and constantly developed application for peer-to-peer transfers using the BitTorrent protocol. It is ready to be used out of the box by "casual users", but also highly configurable through its many advanced options.
