uTorrent 3.4.2.32549

utorrent

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. 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 1.0 MB in size.

I have used uTorrent since 1.x and I have been wanting to switch to qBittorrent since around 3.3.x of uTorrent but I am seeding over 800 torrents in UTorrent and there is still no utility or functionality to import the hashes and torrents from uTorrent into qBittorrent. So if I were to switch, I would literally need MONTHS of rehashing time to seed my 800 torrents in qB not to mention many man hours having to re-add the torrents by hand.

This is the biggest sticking point keeping a lot of utorrent users, myself included, from migrating to qBittorrent. The resume.dat file is NOT proprietary, it is BEncoded and there are open source libraries to decoding the metadata inside it. And neither is qBittorrent's equivalent to resume.dat.

uTorrent 3.4.2 has this UGLY bug where you can't size the sidebar lower than illustrated in the image.

Oh, yeah, this sucks... Because, you know, it's just SO! MUCH! WORK! pressing F7 and NEVER seeing any ads again.

Yawn! You people are getting old with the same blabbering every new version.

RSS is also broken. :D

F7 disables the sidebar entirely, which is not a solution.

In order to disable ads, one has to modify 5 vaguely named strings in advanced settings which do not necessarily hold after upgrading. This also isn't a viable solution.

You can still disable the ads and the interface is once again clean. I've personally tried most of the clients out there and every time reverted to uTorrent.

That's all fine until you get a big ad in the sidebar. It keeps the ad width and you cant resize the sidebar smaller. I downgraded to 2.2.1.

You may not see the ads, but they are still there. To me, utorrent is somewhat a privacy risk now, with the versions with the built in ads. older versions not so much, but qbitorrent works for me.

some people wouldnt mind the ads and all that stuff, because some dont even notice them or care at all, like the most basic users, who even have trouble grasping the whole idea of torrents, let alone magnet links

i, personally, felt that utorrent is no longer suitable, mostly because of the ads that are being forced, so i switched to qbittorrent and never looked back

i dont like greedy companies who put ads in free clients, just limiting features and having FREE in the name, about screen and taskbar is just enough

hell, uTorrent should become "uTorrent Free" and be trough with it

I did the same. But one thing I need to give uTorrent credit for, is the RSS downloader NEVER gave me problems and worked flawlessly, whereas qBittorents is very fussy and half of the time just flat out doesn't work :(
