Labs test: Torrent Clients

Labs test: Torrent Clients

All BitTorrent clients will download torrent files, but they vary wildly in the amount of features they have. Here's a rundown on the most popular clients out there.

BitTorrent isn’t an application – it’s a system. Unlike other P2P programs, such as eDonkey or Kazaa, there isn’t central program.

Instead you need a ‘client’, and there are many to choose from. The client acts as your central application for downloading torrent files.

We have compared four of the best and most popular to help you get underway. You may want a powerful and full-featured client for complete control and transparency of information. Alternatively, there are sweet and simple clients that won’t bother you with anything more sophisticated download progress bar.

Jump in and read for yourself the results of our testing, and begin to enjoy the wonderful world of Bit Torrent!
