uTorrent 3.4.2.33023

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 2.0 MB in size.

Its really funny how people whine about utorrent's file size. LMAO! It's only 1.8MB, its not 1 GB! Why do people whine about an updated software that's only 1+ megabyte file size? Does it take you 5 hours to download it? LOL!

Also about other whining about the so called crapware inside utorrent, you probably dont know how to install do you? I suggest to unclick those crapware durung installation. LMAO.

utorrent's been helping us download those softwares, movies, games, etc. and now, you saying its a crap? tsk tsk tsk some people really are stupid

And before uTorrent we had bloated/features or lightweight/featureless torrent apps. uTorrent prompted others to make features/lightweight torrent apps.

How's deluge compared to utorrent? The talk on many forums is that Deluge is Python-based and has a slow user interface. Any truth to that?

not really, it still feels like there is something in the background and when you download stuff, even loading websites takes longer

If you do a few tweaks, you won't really notice it, if any.

"Additionally, the program itself is contained within a single executable less than 1.0 MB in size."

"1.8 MB (Freeware)"

That description may need updating, its not so micro anymore.

some time ago having a 80gb hard disk was a big deal, now having 1tb is no big deal, standards change

Yep, about 600kB of that is the bundled AdKnow and OpenCandy malware.

You can delete them using CFF Explorer to reduce the binary size.

I do this with each new build and I also zero out the embedded malware DLLs.

Adware/malware same thing.

It's funny that a user must do what the devs refuse to do, and that is to remove the crapware from the installer. that cff explorer looks interesting.

genuinely curious, why don't you just deselect them at install using the wizard?

Because the malware remains in the binary regardless, and I always modify software to fit my needs, whether its in Visual Studio if the source code is available, or I have to attach a debugger/disassembler to achieve it or hex editor, PE Explorer, CFF Explorer. I know EULAs forbid it usually, but that matters very little to me.

If a problem arises that the developer refuses to fix, I fix it myself to fit my needs. Where there is a will there is a way. If software is ruined by bundled malware, I undo the author's changes to it. Simple.

Most devices have less than 80gb though, of course most of those device users won't ever use torrent apps and even Valve's hardware survey has about 80gb or less at over 20%

SSDs are gaining faster market share than high capacity drives.
