uTorrent 3.0 Build 25756

µTorrent is an efficient and feature rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little CPU, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.

Micro-Sized Yet Feature Filled

Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Azureus 2.4.0.0 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange.

Resource-Friendly

µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources - typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren't there at all. Additionally, the program itself is contained within a single executable less than 220 KB in size.

Skinnable and Localized

Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. µTorrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language. If your language isn't available, you can easily add your own, or edit other existing translations to improve them!

Actively Developed and Improved

The developer puts in a lot of time working on features and making things more user-friendly. Releases only come out when they're ready, with no schedule pressures, so the few bugs that appear are quickly addressed and fixed.

What's new in this release:

  • µTorrent Web for zero-conf, secure remote access
  • Torrent Ratings
  • Drop files to send
  • Streaming
  • Webseeding fixes
  • Portable mode (when run in standalone mode off a removable drive)
  • Simplified view

A more detailed write-up of all the new features is available on the BitTorrent Blog.

The vast majority is on 2.2.1. It was a matter of time since a company bought it, to turn it into bloatware. Logical since they bought it for this specific reason, to exploit it beneficially. At the beginning they started easy, but now... forget the ol' good days.

Still using Bittorrent 7.0 (uTorrent 2.0). Have not upgraded to new version ever since they replaced the old icons with the new overly cartoonish icons set.

It's really not that bad as everyone takes it. It's more about performance than looks.

Using 2.0.4 still. Looks much more professional and less space wasting for the amount of content.

The Resource friendly part is a croc. I ran it and it was using 13.9MB of Ram. I exited out of it and a few minutes later clicked on the Icon on my desktop. It started to installed the program a second time. I am now back and will stay with release 2.2.1.

Are you suggesting that 13.9MB is a lot of RAM?!
