    I use Vuze (formerly Azureus) for my torrent program. Here is the link;

    Vuze sucks, It cuts out internet connection if your on wireless get Transmission but you better be using this for legal files.

    Azureus (Vuze in classic mode) it's clunky but still the best torrent program.

    I recommend Xtorrent. It's about as simple as Transmission with added RSS features.

    Another vote for transmission.

    Also a vote for using the search function, this same question is asked at least once a fortnight. :)

    One more vote for Transmission. Just got it the other day and after spending about 5 min watching a How-To video on YouTube I quickly got the hang of it. Great program!

    OK why do you need a torrent program if you don't know where to get torrents?

    Azureus/Vuze is way too memory intensive. Xtorrent is another David Watanabe production, so I stay away.

    Transmission is fast, small, lightweight, and very stable. It gets my vote.


    BEWARE FOLKS: it's against the rules to discuss things that are on the wrong side of the law.

    Check the forum rules... ;)

    I use opera, the web browser. Does web, torrent, irc, feeds, and other things I'm constantly finding, though I've used it for years...

    I believe he is talking about the two users above him who posted torrent sites.
