uTorrent, according to the developers, is a "tiny torrent client". The application really takes less than a megabyte on the hard disk, which, however, does not prevent it to please users with extensive functionality and remain the most popular solution for downloading torrents in the world. The customer's popularity is primarily due to the ease of use. The program does not require any preliminary configuration, and in order to start downloading the necessary files from the tracker, just click on the torrent-file and choose the place where you plan to save the downloaded content. After a short connection to the peers, uTorrent will start downloading, and at the end of the download will notify you via a pop-up notification in the taskbar. Loading speed, which is typical for peer-to-peer networks, directly depends on the number of users who have already downloaded the torrent and now "distribute" (sit) it. With a sufficient number of handouts, the speed is limited only by the width of your Internet channel.
In general, the uTorrent interface is typical for such programs. The main area of the client window is occupied by the list of downloads. All settings for a particular download are located in the drop-down menu. Here you can set the priority for each torrent, limit the speed of download and upload, pause or resume the download, open the folder with the downloaded files and so on. Interestingly, the client also knows how to sort the downloaded content by the download end date, size, rating, set by other users of the program and other parameters. From all the above we can conclude that uTorrent has a multimillion-dollar army of users for a reason. This torrent client is virtually devoid of flaws, and the many useful features and free distribution make it an excellent choice for all categories of PC users.
