    Is there a BitTorrent app for Mac OS X which also supports RSS and downloading the torrents from them? Like µTorrent.

    I've looked on MacUpdate and VersionTracker already, and found several, but I just want to know what some recommendations are :)

    I'll look into it, although I'd prefer something like µTorrent but for the Mac. :) I know that Azureus has RSS support, but it's way too bloated.

    Azureus runs much better on Mac than it does on PC. It is bloated, I'll give you that, however that being said it is an amazing, powerful app, and I can run it without any lag or system resource issues on my 1.25 GHz G4 iMac with 1 GB of RAM using 10.3.9. It gives me a lot of the complex functionality I require for my torrenting needs, and as I said, doesn't noticeably impact my system whatsoever. :cool:

    Compared to µTorrent, it is excessively bloated. If something like µTorrent were available on the Mac, then I'd take it right away :)

    Yeah, µTorrent does sound pretty cool, so I'd definitely give it a try if a Mac version came out. Since it's Windows-onloy though, well, that's a big strike against it - after all, who wants to run in a Windows environment if they don't have to? :p ;) :cool:
