Torrent client rec'n (besides uTorrent)
« on: February 21, 2017, 03:27:58 PM »
Third time I've picked up malware through uTorrent and their ads, so I'm looking for a new client. Any recommendations?

What OS?

Also, have you tried uTorrent 2.2.1? (old version, before they sold out to BitTorrent)

I still use it, I use Windows 7 and haven't had any issues in the 6+ years I've been using it.

Mac:
Transmission
Deluge
qBittorrent

Linux:
Deluge
Transmission
kTorrent
rTorrent (CLI-based client, advanced users)

Windows:
uTorrent 2.2.1
Deluge

Might have to check out transmission.
Deluge is good though.

I've used Transmission with no problems for a while now. I like how simple and not frills it is, and the interface is intuitive for a mac user.

qBittorrent works amazingly well for me on a windows machine.

Light, efficient, and regular updates....

Phish doesn't write beautiful music...the beautiful music happens after the written parts.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.
