The Smaller Gentler Torrent Client
I use torrents all the time (all for legitimate, legal purposes of course ... cough). I have used many of the standard clients (Azureus, BitComet, etc.). Most of these clients are way TOO fat for my tastes. There use of Java or just superflous features make put them squarely in the NO column in my book. Then I discuvered a little BitTorrent client called uTorrent. This Windows BitTorrent client is 96KB. That's right, 96KB. It has all the features I'm looking for including bandwidth shaping and scheduling. Here is a picture of that little feature:
I think this BitTorrent program is fully worthy of your attention if you value efficiency and expediency in you applications.
