    Just wondering what is the best bittorent client out there for mac users. I am preferably looking for something that is user friendly.
    The only ones I know are tomatotorrent and azureus.
    If there are any other suggestions please post here.
    Thanks in advance!

    My favorite by far would have to be transmission, its simple, it works, and it isn't a resource hog.

    I second (or fourth, I guess) the vote for transmission. Simple, useful, and doesn't hog resources.

    Transmission + use the search option on this forum. There's a lot of topics asking this already and you'll get the answers there.

    I'm currently downloading with both Azureus and Transmission. After Azureus finishes, I think I'm only going to use Transmission. Its amazing how Transmission uses only half the resources that Azureus uses.

    I've used them all and in the end I prefer BitTyrant, simply for the speed. It's based on Azureus so it's buggy and crashes periodically, but you simply can't compete with its speed. I've gotten over a megabyte per second on a cable connection with it.

    Read the FAQ, it apparently uses some technique that makes it more "selfish" than the other torrent clients.

    I started with Azureus and switched to Transmission. After one download with Transmission, I removed Azureus from my system.

    I haven't used Transmission, so I can't say whether it is good or not. But I'd recommend Azureus.
