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 haven't used uTorrent for years (I stopped when it was still ad-free). Why does anyone bother with it, there are so many ad-free alternatives?

Legit question: what added value does uTorrent have above ad-free alternatives like, e.g.: Transmission?

For complicated reasons. In my case: I left the Windows world to Linux for years. Back then there was no utorrent for Linux, so I used what was available: Transmission (there are others, but that's what I chose). When coming back to Windows, I didn't go back to utorrent and used the Windows version of Transmission.

Waaah the free software has ads, waaah it takes a couple of minutes to figure out how to disable them if you've just installed the software, waaah i shouldn't have to see ads when I'm stealing content I mean downloading linux ISOs

Ads aren't the problem, its the lack of proper labeling system. It used to have one, but then they removed it before they even added the replacement, and as of the last release (not sure if this one has fixed it or not), the replacement doesn't even work.

Though it can be worked around by using the Web UI, as they only removed labels from the main UI and not the actual backend code or Web UI code.

Its not just ads anymore. The whole program is broken.

I'm curious to know what's broken for you? I've been using uTorrent since version
3.3.x without any hiccups.

EDIT: Sorry for double posting.

Two things come to mind. Well three. Broken RSS that never auto updates, and has to always be manually updated.

A sidebar that is super wide and cannot be resized lower even with ads disabled.

Certain settings resetting each launch or even every two hours.
