    Wondering if anyone has experience with a good free download manager for torrent sites and such.

    Thanks

    For torrents, I have heard good things about Transmission.

    I'm using Transmission and it is really good! I also tried Azureus but I didn't like it.

    So transmission is like the middle man then. You do not actually search for the torrent with transmission like you do with azureus????

    No. Transmission is only the client. But therefore it is smaller and in my opinion faster.

    No, and don't ask again for help with pirating software.

    Agreed.
    But yes, I love Transmission, but I'm also hoping uTorrent will get better. Currently, it's far behind- but it is just in beta...:)
