uTorrent 3.1.2 Build 26740

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 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange.


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.

been meaning to try out tixati but the one nogo for me is lack of web gui. This is how I interact with utorrent. Until this is an option -- just can not move away from utorrent.

I'd say stay away from sellout utorrent and try tixati. Been a utorrent fan since its release but it "died" a few months ago...

And why did it "die"? And don't give me the "its bloated" argument, its still very light on resources and you can hide nearly every ui element.

Tixati is kinda hideous..

Agreed. It would be alright without the horrible black colorscheme in the middle.

Personally I think utorrent is still great and all the hate recent versions get is pretty unwarranted.
