?Torrent 1.6 Final build 472>

?Torrent is a freeware BitTorrent client currently for Microsoft Windows only. The entire program is a single 154.44 KB compressed executable (as of version 1.5, March 2006). It was designed to use as little of a computer's resources as possible while offering functionality equivalent to the most popular, full-featured clients, such as Azureus or BitComet.

Thanks for the update. As for the performance, I feel no difference between this and Bitcomet, but it's so surprisingly light weight, so I started to switch.

BTW, does it take longer to create a torrent using utorrent? Or maybe it's because I'm running it in wine.

Great program. I wish more programs were this efficient. I mean wow all that in 170kb! Just because hard disk size are big is no excuse for pooping all over the drive with excessive files. Hear that Steam?

I like utorrent, but I still get better speeds with Bittornado. I just wish BT was as lightweight on memory as Utorrent is.
