Trying to download new Top Gear season. What is the best free torrent client? Thanks in advance
Vuze has always worked well for me.
you are not allowed to talk about torrenting on this website. please direct your questions to another site - or search google.
What if he/she wants to download a free Linux distro or any other freeware via bittorrent? There's absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. And torrent downloaders are legal as well.
Utorrent is available for Mac. I use Vuze in Ubuntu too, it's great. Never tried it on Mac but it can't be much different.
Saying WHAT he/she wants to download is the problem though...
uTorrent is absolutely beautiful. It has a nice lightweight feel but is incredibly powerful. Absolutely recommend
i've found Transmission to be the best for my needs. lightweight, full featured and simple.
I've been using uTorrent for a few years now on both Macs and PC's. I love it.
There's nothing against forum rules being discussed here.
I vote Transmission with uTorrent and Opera as a close second. I think Opera would be the best choice, but that may just be my workflow. I like having my browser be my torrent client also.
I feel that Transmission lacks the power of uTorrent. Both are very nice and have a very minimal GUI but I feel that uTorrent simply downloads faster.
The two applications basically have the same features, but they are just organized very differently. I often hear "uTorrent does this, but Transmission doesn't" or "Transmission does these things (a), (b), and (c) that uTorrent can't" Nine times out of ten both statements are wrong. In fact I haven't found a feature the two don't share.
I doubt that very much. That's not really how torrents work.
Transmission force quits and hangs every time you quit the app. uTorrent doesn't. One has a huge memory leak and the other doesn't. It doesn't take a genius to figure out which one is better.
No it doesn't. There's something wrong with your set up.
Quit spreading lies and misinformation. Although I've found you're very good at that.
I've used Vuze, uTorrent, and Transmission on my mac. Transmission seems to be the most lightweight and works the best. Would definitely recommend it.
yes i never said that did i. if it were a linux based question to start off with- i would have been fine with it. but since it relates to downloading illegal data, its not right to discuss it here, is it.
"Trying to download new Top Gear season." directly from the OP. now what does that indicate?
if i must vote, i also go for Transmission. lightweight.
We know what it indicates, but it is not against forum rules to say what you intend to do with a torrent client, only to ask for torrents and share files.
Just what do you use torrents for? Is everything you download completely legal, or is this a case of hypocrisy?
I use Transmission on my Mac and have been happy with it.
Transmission does hang and have to be force closed from time to time. It hangs just like the last version of VLC 64-bit hangs. There's nothing wrong with my setup but something wrong with you what you call lies and misinformation. It apparently means truth in your world.
Just like all applications. Although I use Transmission a fair amount and I've never once had it hang or need to be force quit.
I don't understand how you've never made it onto my ignore list before, I've always found you very irritating. Anyway, welcome to the ignore list.
he indicated what he will be downloading in his OP post, aka, talking about illegally downloading files. come on - dont be rediculous, you know the rules.
of course i download illegally, we all do. except im not the one advertising it.
There's nothing against forum rules in telling people that you will use a torrent client for illegal purposes. I will admit it toes the line, but it's not against the rules.
heh. maybe i have short toes
i use both transmission and utorrent. i prefer transmissions GUI for the most part.
Trasmission no doubt. With it's XML-rpc control it is superior, I have written a perl script to control it from comand line when I'm at work. It's awesome.
I've always used Transmission--version 2 just released.
Was the first piece of software I ever installed on my mac and it will be the last to leave. It was the reason I bought a second mac when my old mac book had to be replaced. Really.
