BitTorrent is one of the first and most popular torrent clients, which allows you to quickly and safely share files with your friends or other computer users. BitTorrent is a simple piece of software that makes downloading big bundles of ﬁles (torrents) fast. The program is very well optimized for downloading from multiple sources, and uses only minimal computer resources. Harness a community of over 150 million users to deliver files to your PC faster than anything else.
BitTorrent client first appeared on the market in July of 2001, and was presented to the world as the first client that was fully based to work only with BitTorrent protocol. With popularity quickly achieved, this client became known in the developer community as “mainline”, software solution that was viewed as the basis of the entire transfer protocol. Development of this app continued to be open source until 2006 when its code was switched to be powered by μTorrent. From that point on BitTorrent client stopped being open source, and adopted closed developer structure that produces steady updates even until today.
Interface of BitTorrent client is very traditional, offering anyone easy way of controlling current downloads, number of connections and everything else that is needed from the modern peer-to-peer file transfer client (parallel downloads, speed limits, automatic file recovery…). One interesting addition can also be found - integrated search engine for discovering new torrents. As of early 2014, interface of BitTorrent client was translated to 66 international languages.
BitTorrent Main Features:
Ultra-fast file delivery
Move big files quickly and efficiently. The technology breaks big files down into small pieces. The files are then downloaded, piece by piece, from one or many different sources. Since the files are broken down into tiny bites, you use less bandwidth. Which means your downloads move a lot faster.
Free, unlimited downloading
Download gigabytes. Download terabytes. Distribute petabytes. With BitTorrent, there are no limits to the number of files you can download, or the amount of data you can move.
Instant play on in-progress downloads
Watch while you download. You don’t need to wait for your files to finish downloading to start using them. Press play on media files, and watch, listen, or read them as you download.
Built-in bandwidth booster
Optimize speed for your connection. BitTorrent auto-adjusts bandwidth usage, based on your network and Internet connection, to ensure fast file delivery. Your downloads run in the background. Which means they’ll never slow down video chats or game play.
