    I was just wondering what every ones take was on what client was the best in your eyes, I've used Utrorent for a number of years but I like mixing things up from time to time. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this so mods if its not I'm sorry and please feel free to move it to the right place k :)

    I've also noticed that Vuze seems to be coming up allot now a days is it any good or is it better than utorrent I know there are allot of clients out there but I'd like to know what are cream of the crop :)

    I've tried Deluge and it's not a bad alternative.

    Well I'm trying Transmission but keep the feed back coming and does any one know of a good program that makes torrenting anonymous so no one sees what your downloading/torrenting?

    I love Transmission on Linux I was not aware they made it for Windows, going to try it out but if its half as good as the one for Linux utorrent can kiss its ass goodbye.

    My microtorrent already maxes out my internet connection. Now unless you're downloading / seeding literally hundreds of torrents at once (I have max 20 at any one time) and you need to organise them or w/e, I can't see why you'd need anything different. Microtorrent starts quick and isn't exactly a strain on resources.

    I don't get how torrent clients can really be 'better' than each other (well, presuming they're all up to the standard of microtorrent).

    Er, when torrenting you're connecting to a bunch of people in the swarm for that file, and they all have to know what you're downloading as you're downloading it from them (and uploading it to them).

    Don't count on it bud, I love Utorrent and there's a reason so many ppl use it today and know of it.

    I've tried many clients from the official BitTorrent client to Vuze to uTorrent to small torrent projects like Arctic Torrent. I've stayed with uTorrent the longest, but there's a list of reasons I don't like it. I just haven't felt like switching permanently to something else yet.

    A lot of it is more down to the UI rather than whatever functions it has.

    I was speaking about the space it occupies on my hard drive.
