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?

  1. uTorrent
  2. BitComet
