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!

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.
