µTorrent is a (very) tiny BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. µTorrent is an efficient, feature rich and built for speed. That means ultra-efficient downloads of mega-sized files.
The program was designed to use as little CPU, space and memory as possible while offering all the functionalites expected from advanced clients.
With µTorrent, you can download files faster and contribute by sharing files and bandwidth. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent. That includes bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT.
Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification and peer exchange. This application was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources.
Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. µTorrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language. If your language isn’t available, you can easily add your own, or edit other existing translations to improve them!
