uTorrent for Mac is a basic, free, and fast BitTorrent client that makes it easy for you to download torrent files. It’s a bit thin on features, but it’s lightweight and lets you download files hassle-free.
Fast and reliable: uTorrent for Mac downloads files much more quickly than other peer-to-peer file sharing applications that we have used in the past, such as the now-defunct Limewire, without limiting our ability to use our Internet connection with other applications. It’s a bit stripped down in features compared to other popular clients such as Vuze (Azureus), but if ease of use is all you need, you won’t mind this.
Automated bandwidth adjusting: This application has been programmed to auto-adjust the amount of bandwidth it uses. You can also manually set limits for bandwidth used for uploading and downloading files.
Helpful resources: This program features an intuitive yet basic OS X-style interface, so you won’t have trouble finding your way. However, if you are unfamiliar with the BitTorrent protocol and how torrent files work, don’t distress — the uTorrent Web site offers very helpful guides, including a wonderfully clear and informative video that will help get you started.
