    which bit torrent program do you use to download files?
    i have Azureus but it's too much for my OS, i'd like something
    lighter but as good as.
    i've tried several others (eg. Bits on Wheels , Tomato Torrent)
    but haven't found something that i like as much.

    ps.because of this i've ended up downloading stuff on my pc using
    μtorrent and then transfering the data over to my mac :(

    Transmission is fairly lightweight and one of the more reliable out there. Well worth a try...

    downloaded and using it now, thanks.
    looks ok and it is very lightweight.
    not as many options as i'd like, but then again, i don't really need much
    my main problem is that ?torrent for example picks up seeds and leechers
    pretty fast and overall has a good download rate (when there are seeds available of course) and azureus was pretty ****y on that.
    i'll have to see how Transmission fairs.
    any other suggestions?
