Updated on May 11, 2011

There are lots of BitTorrent Clients to download torrent files. All of them are free of cost. Some of them are uTorrent, BitComet, BitTornado, BitLord, TurboBT, Azureus, BitTorrent, Yet ABC, Shareaza, XBT Client, G3 Torrent, torrentflux, BitPump, Burst! etc. I personally use several BitTorrent Clients software. But I don't want to mention all about the Torrent Client software. Here, I only discuss about two of them which are really nice to use. Those two bit torrent clients are uTorrent and BitComet. Moreover, which BitTorrent is the best, I also tell you about that.

How to select the best BitTorrent Client?

For selecting the best BitTorrent Client, I think the following points have to keep in mind:

  • How much the BitTorrent Client consumes computer resourses i.e. memory and processors etc.
  • How many files that the BitTorrent client can download simultaneously.
  • Is the BitTorrent Client is capable to quick-resume?
  • Is it possible to configure the bandwidth and bandwidth scheduler?
  • Does the BitTorrent client is capable to exchange torrent while downloading?
  • IS there any options to disable download or set to higher or lower priority, allowing you to select which files finish first.
  • Does it supports RSS download?

What is my best BitTorrent Client?

I use more than 20 BitTorrent clients. I generally use it to download software, movies, books. Here, I only tell you about the best two BitTorrent client name and why they are favourite to me. My best two BitTorrent clients are:

  1. uTorrent
  2. BitComet

uTorrent : My Best BitTorrent Client

uTorrent is also known as micro torrent. This is the most popular torrent tool today. uTorrent is designed to use as little CPU, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.The best reason to like uTorrent is:

  • it provides all the functions a torrent downloader will ever need
  • It has the minimal impact of omputer's speed.
  • It only requires 1 MB of hard drive space and memory to install and use it.
  • uTorrent has all the downloading and seeding performance of its competitors.
  • uTorrent supports RSS downloader.
  • Global and per-torrent speed limiting is an excellent feature of uTorrent.
  • It supports quickly resumes interrupted transfers.
  • uTorrent can be capable to download multiple files simultaneously.
  • The bandwidth can also configurable by uTorrent.

And for the above reasons, uTorrent is my best favourite BitTorrent Client.

BitComet : My Second Best BitTorrent Client

BitComet is my second best BitTorrent download management software. It's very powerful, fast, very easy-to-use, and completely free. Moreover, many advanced features also available on it. The best reason to like BitComet are:

  • It has no adware or spyware and it's Clean and free
  • BitComet is completely written in C++.
  • It's stable and fast and consume very low CPU usage.
  • It can download several files simultaneously.

      Found another one SKDownloader with a cool "One click torrent download" functionality. Just right click on a torrent link from your browser and select "download with SKDownloader" and it will download the torrent and use that to download the file for you :)

      Their web page is http://www.toolsbysk.com/skdownloader.
