µTorrent is a torrent client that was initially released in 2005. The program is used for downloading and managing torrent files. The program has a built-in search feature where users can search for torrent files on the Internet. Users can also subscribe to RSS feeds to see the latest updated from torrent sites. One of the features of the program is the speed guide, which tests the ports and makes changes to the settings in order to achieve optimum performance.
The program’s interface is simple and easy to use. The main window shows a list of all the torrents. The list can be filtered by selecting one of the items from the list on the left side. They can be filtered according to the torrents being downloaded, the ones that are seeding, complete torrents, and active and inactive torrents. Users can also set the priority for each torrent file. On the lower part of the window, users can view more information about the torrent including the files, peers, ratings, trackers, and the speed. Completed torrents can be double-clicked to open on the computer’s default media player.
