You guys ever run bittorrents? I was wondering which torrent program do you guys use on a mac?
I'm downloading a Linux distribution via bittorrent right now.
I prefer Transmission if I'm torrenting on OS X.
I agree, Transmission is the best.
Fourthed. I use Transmission too. I really like that it shows your DL and UL speeds in the dock.
i like tomato torrent, it's not great... but it works well for freeware
i guess i'll try transmission, if it's as good as u say, it can't hurt
Another vote for Transmission
Transmission, without a doubt.
I've used the original bittorrent, and tomato torrent and nothing compares.
As a member of a breakfast club, I have to run them 24/7. Azureus is my choice.
Another vote for Transmission. It's simple to use and works well.
what's a breakfast club?
i've tried azureus, but i now use transmission. but i rarely run bittorrents anyway
Breakfast is my favorite meal.
I also use Azureus.
Azureus. There are probably "better" ones but I'm used to Az (classic UI, of course!) so I've never seen any reason to switch to anything else.
is there a way so that when you close the lid of your laptop, transmission downloads dont get paused? (and other things as well such Adium signing off, etc.)
Only if you hack the OS to not sleep with the lid closed.
Same here. I even updated to 3.x and immediately reinstalled 2.5.
As far as "better" ones or the "best" go, they aren't going to make my internet connection any faster and on healthy torrents I up and download at max with Azureus so I've never seen a point in switching.
Me? No; I've never run a torrent in my life.
I use bittorrents to acquire HD copies of films that I own on DVD, because my computer doesn't play Blu-Ray disks yet.
Otherwise, I don't use torrents.
I used to use Azureus until it kept crashing Leopard. I use Transmission now. I liked Azureus better, but Transmission will have to do.
I use Transmission, but i rarely download torrents
Another one here for Transmission.
Transmission here. Hopefully we'll get uTorrent soon.
uTorrent it is absolutely brilliant, but it's a windows thing - intel mac users can use it but I'm not sure it's a straightforward process. We got it on one of our PCs and use it via VMware on the mac pro.
Short of that, Transmission is good stuff.
come on, come on. let me in on the secret here
