    So what d you guys think?

    Lightest fastest? Has anyone heard anything about utorrent for OSX?

    So far through Google I have heard that Azereus is the best but I want to see what you all think.

    Let me know

    I was using Azureus for awhile, but on some recommendations I tried Transmission. Azureus has since been deleted from my computer.

    Although I use Xtorrent, I would highly suggest you use Transmission. It's free (unlike Xtorrent) and it's Open Source.

    Check it out!

    yet another vote for transmission

    i've heard good things about azureus but haven't really found a reason to transition over yet...i appreciate the simplicity of transmission

    Transmission.

    Make sure you change the settings to only accept encrypted connections. Then Rogers won't be able to sniff your packets :)

    i run utorrent on bootcamp. i can never get transmission or azuerus to get fast speeds on osx. but i would choose transmission since it seems to work better than azeurus.

    azureus is java based, and is kinda slow compared to others. Unfortunately there isnt anything as good as utorrent for OSX but transmission would be the next best thing to use right now.

    At one point Comcast had the clamps down on file transfers, so it didn't really matter... but think that may have changed.

    Transmission seemed to be sufficient.

    Azureus, but make sure you switch to the retro interface when trying it.

    What do u mean by "Rogers won't be able to sniff your packets"? like people would hack into your computer, or law enforcements or record labels would spy on you?
