anyone have any opinions on which torrent client is best for OSX? i mean on PCs its obvious that µTorrent and Azureaus are the pic, but what is the main pick for OSX?

i was using the universal build of azureus but the freakin program is too heavy and it killed my webbrowsing and i recently switched to TRANSMISSION which is really lightweight and full featued but is it the mac torrent client of choice?

hey buddy no idea for OSX .
i have a PC and i use µTorrent on it . wt i like the most about it that it is a perfect example that shows that a software need not be bulky to be good and feature rich.
phinguyen
hmm.. ic. thanks for your partatiapation on the poll.

Azereus should work for OS X as it is a Java based torrent client. Also, uTorrent is windows only.
phinguyen
yeah, in my orignal post i had mentioned that azereus is too heavy, the java base makes it too muddy to use. but thanks for your vote and post.

I think utorrent is windows only...
I used tomato torrent and it worked just fine.

Transmission is good. Its very light on the system, you can pause your downloads, and you can control your uploads.

The difference between Tomato Torrent and Transmission is that Transmission fits in with Mac looks. And it's much easier to use, and runs well on Intel Macs. (Tomato torrent doesn't)

Azerous is far too slow to be really useful, and again, doesn't fit in with Mac looks. It also has far too many settings that will never be used, in my opinion. While it may be good for some users, in my mind Transmission wins hands down on Mac OS X.

XTorrent looks good though only in public beta. Check it out: www.xtorrent.com

dont use osx but on my pc i either use µTorrent or Flashget.
I recommend flashget if you want to get the max speed you can out of it...
Flashget is also useful for http downloads as well.

if you really want to use uTorrent i heard it works fine through wine. And if you have a intel mac you can use uTorrent. I am on linux so i use cross over office for photoshop and office but i read on some uTorrent forum that it works through wine perfectly. So get wine for mac or go buy crossover office for mac.

I am using µTorrent on my PC now. but flashget is not supported by OSX right? I heard that Bit Rocket is another torrent client for OSX, anyone try using it before? Wink

I heard that µtorrent works quite good on mac with darwine.
I tried BitRocket long ago and it looks nice, but crashes on some torrents.
When I use BitTorrent (that's not that often), I use transmission 'cause it's light-weight, has a good bunch of functions and a great interface.

I like uTorrent and use it in Windows environment.
In Mac I use Transmission. Didn't really like it but that's the best I think I can get.
I want the funtion to select files that we want to download like in uTorrent/Bitcomet in Transmission, and wait for it such a long time. Until now doesn't happen Very Happy

I use Bit on wheels on mac os X tiger and it works good.

i enjoy transmission, although im aware it does have some problems with a few trackers because it sends the wrong ratio to it

but eh, its fine on demonoid and brokenstones
fadirocks
umm for Mac hmm

how about http://www.bitsonwheels.com ?

Quote:
Bits on Wheels is the first 100% Native BitTorrent client for the Macintosh.
It is completely written in Objective-C and Cocoa.
fiendskull9
hmm

seems like it'd be a resource hog

it'd make a great Opensource project

but the freeware thing kinda turns me off

Why is uTorrent on that list? its a windows only client. I use azureus and xtorrent. the xtorrent UI is really cleanly done. very simple to use.
