    Next time, try to use the search function before posting a topic as broad as this.

    I see that you are new, but please, read the Forum Rules, most torrent search engines are have illegal content (duh), so we will NOT discuss this here.

    Wait...why can't we discuss torrent engines? There are LOTS of legal torrents and as long as we don't discuss anything illegal, we're fine. Furthermore, the torrenting software is perfectly legal! Personally, I love Transmission!

    Yah, linking to torrent sites is a no-no, however, for Torrent Apps there can be many legal uses. Transmission and xTorrent are prolly 2 of the best, until uTorrent port is finished, anyway.

    Google will find you websites. :)

    Transmission is the best, it is fast, lite, and shows your upload/download speeds in the dock.

    Transmission is what I use, although it sometimes seems as though it doesn't download/upload as fast as some other clients. You might also check out BitRocket.

    Oh but there is something about the 3D view on Bits on wheels that is so good! It makes me feel as though its actually downloading! Sad the developer just went... site hasnt been updated for almost 3 years!

    Slight misread. Discussion of torrent software itself is fine.
    Asking for or providing links to illegal content, or talk about how to do something illegal like breaking copyright are not tolerated.
