uTorrent is one of the most popular applications for downloading torrents. It’s minimal and doesn’t use as much computer resources as other similar applications and I guess that’s why it’s so popular.
uTorrent can also create torrent-files if you want to share some of your files.
You can cap your download and upload speed at certain hours, so you download and upload at full speed when you’re sleeping and other speeds when you’re using your computer.
