    µTorrent is an efficient and feature rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little cpu, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.

    Main Features:
    - Multiple simultaneous downloads
    - Smart bandwidth usage
    - File level priorities
    - Configurable bandwidth scheduling
    - Global and per-torrent speed limiting
    - Quickly resumes interrupted transfers
    - UPnP support (WinXP only)
    - Supports popular protocol extensions
    - Localized to different languages
    - Typical memory use less than 4 MB
    - Incredibly small

    This may be a stupid question but is it safe to run µTorrent now-a-days?? I switched to Vuze a while back and haven't look back for some reason. lol.

    Any input on this is welcome. ;)

    Thanks to FERGUS for the link and info!!

    What advantage do you see in running Vuze (Azureus) over µTorrent? They both support the same Protocol Encryption, if I am not mistaken. And µTorrent is a much smaller app to deal with. But that just shows how little I know about them. I am asking these questions for my own benefit as I continue to use µTorrent, but I am wondering if there is a reason that i should switch.

    EDIT: I found this pretty nice comparison for some of the programs in this area. I noticed under the "con" items for µTorrent is lists a known security issue from 2008. I wonder if this is what originally turned you off of it? Although it does say there are not any known issues with the current release, it does make a person wonder. Thanks for the heads up matey. :)

    Yep that's it I'm pretty sure FERGUS. It had something to do with going from 1.6.1 version to the 1.7 version I believe. ;) I'm really looking forward to the 2.0 version and see how that one performs. ;)
