    Biggest feature... DHT!!

    Best handling of DHT, IMO, since it automatically disables it when the private flag is enabled, some other clients do, but they didn't implement DHT in just an extra 7 kilobytes. It's now 105KB which is about 30KB bigger than it was for the first version.

    I love it!

    I'm seeing more and more peers using Utorrent all the time. It probably helps a lot that Mininova has a direct link to Utorrent on their torrent download pages.

    I agree the programming is great, no extra plug-ins, libraries, or runtime environments needed. Ludvig is showing us all a few things!

    I have been using this since 1.1.3.

    DHT support is kind of meh. Great client though.

    It is funny how it resembles Azureus so much and they get away with it. A little less CPU usage would be nice so I'll consider changing.

    I'd highly recommend changing, and they're currently working on azureus dht implementation as well as mainline. When this happens, it will be the client to have!

    In Bittorent,you can click on Properties and choose which files to download from a torrent....
    Can you do this in Utorrent?
    Or Azzures?

    Yeah you can do it in both uTorrent and Azureus. The two programs are extremely similar so if you know one, you know the other.

    I only started using uTorrent today, installed version 1.3 after using BitComet for like a year. Prior to me using BitComet - I'd also tried most of the other popular clients and found BitComet to be the best of those.. but uTorrent simply blows BitComet away.

    When using BitComet, my CPU usage would frequently be 20-30% most of the time, and memory usage could be around 60Mb.
    uTorrents memory usage has not gone above 10Mb, its 1.2Mb with no torrents loaded!

    It's so light on the CPU too, and nippy. It's just as configurable as the other clients too, and gets updated extremely regularly. BitComet hasn't been updated for a good while.

    I'm definately a perfectionist with things, and uTorrent I could happily recommend.

    The videos I download with Utorrent are choppy. I downloaded the same video again wit bitcomet with no problems.

    So far Ive tried ABC, BitComet, Azureus and uTorrent and uTorrent by far beats them all. Although uTorrent does not have as many options as say Azureus, uTorrent is much smaller, takes up less memory, takes less time to load, and yet if proparly configured gives you higher speeds then the rest of the clients.
