thumbapps.org µTorrent Portable, bittorrent downloads to go
"A really nice torrent client, small and light-weight, very reliable, will run for weeks without issues. Only problem is that I still see ads sometimes in my paid ad-free subscription, which the company has not responded to. That gets it 4/5 instead 5/5 stars. " —DevoreSekk (a user), download.CNET.com (March 24, 2016)
"Small, light, free." —Stuart (a user), FreewareFiles.com, 30-09-2013.
"Fast and reliable downloads are the most important aspects of torrenting, and uTorrent certainly excels at achieving these two characteristics." —Download.com staff, Yahoo! News, September 14, 2014.
µTorrent is the world's most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet).
