Still moving into my new MacBook Air... What's the Bit Torrent client people use on Mac now? Still Transmission?

personally I like Deluge the best. Use it for casual torrenting on Linux, it has a Mac client too.

If you're doing heavy duty, hundreds or thousands of torrents, it has issues. I've only used rtorrent successfully there, and you can homebrew install it quite easily. And you can install a graphical front end for it if you need to

Iíve stuck with Transmission but donít use their auto-update after that last fiasco.  Itís pretty fast and I like the configurable options a lot, so donít have much of a reason to change unless they decide to start installing backdoors again...

We'll see.

I can't speak to the Mac experience, but as a Windows user I love QBittorent.  It's a lot like what uTorrent was like before it turned to crap.

what's wrong with utorrent?
I don't torrent that much anymore but haven't noticed anything - maybe I'm not observant enough

Maybe too many people complained and it's back to normal now, but a few years ago it got loaded up with ads and you had to jump through hoops to get them to go away.
