Vuze is the perfect tool. It has a simple interface, great download speed and even a build in player. No bugs, works perfectly and it even has a tag feature that helps me organize the downloads. Big like!

The best just got better! THANK YOU.

There is nothing out there that has the features or the stability to compare. Proxy and VPN not a problem because it is FULLY supported. Unlike other so called BitTorrent Clients they care about your PRIVACY.

Anyone who is having problems with the extra features, I suggest that you learn to read first.

Barry5p,
Whatdoes a person's learning to read have to do with a dishonest company's software product that attempts to Install Internet browser MALWARE during default Installation?

What part of Malware don't you understand?

1st time installer. No hassles for me like others say they had with installation. I chose customize and deselected free spigot extensions. Then declined music offer. No big deal. Vuze works much better than Transmission and utorrent. More features too. I liked the classic Vuze view better IMHO.
Thanks Vuze guys.

It worked as announced / shown on youTube, letting pop up a video from my computer on the TV, BUT it installs malware, changes preferences and extensions in your browser!
Beware! Hands off!
That should be obsolete today!

Yup. And the Vuze trolls here will soon be bashing you and your message, and insisting that you can avoid the malware if you carefully deselect the malware during the installation process -- as if the requirement to deselect malware during the installation process is somehow acceptable! LoL. Few links re all this:

WOW! They've really upped the ante on the automatic sleazeware installation. It now takes several more clicks to avoid that crap. I can only hope I avoided ALL of it.

lots of people crying about having to actually learn how to use an app.. I've used them all and this one is way above the others..
1. The use of PROXY'S a must have feature..
2. In house searches..
3. Being able to see who you're connected with and BAN & BLOCK the fake iPs permanently.
4. Installing Block iP lists.
thats just a few must have features. I wouldn't listen to these trolls sent here to bad mouth their competitor..

I turned off the auto-update feature, and was using ver 4.8.x, but today when I started it up, it was version 5.0 and my library was emptied, i.e. the torrents I had completed or were partially completed.

Vuze 5.X is officially one big, hot, steaming load of execrable software.

I hate how the Vuze company hijacks the updating system, as well as trying to surreptitiously hijack's one's browsers with all sorts of plugins. It's become the MacKeeper of torrents.

Use Transmission. Use just about anything else. This software stinks.

Just use the options that you require. Transmission is the application that stinks, too many bugs and unreliable I am afraid.

Too many features for a simple torrent client. All I need is a simple display, and Vuze gives way more features than I need. I am not saying is doesn't do what it advertises - it does - but it was like getting a DVD player and it has a bazillion buttons and all I want to do is hit play. There should at least be a simpler version with estimated times.

Even for a free application, people are much better off with other clients on this site.

It is a shame that you are unable to use the features that Vuze offers to your advantage. Perhaps with a bit more experience you will be able to benefit from a torrent client at this level.
It would appear that you are giving advice about a torrent client that you really do not understand "bazillion buttons". I would suggest that you only give reviews about software that you fully understand.

Vuze is woking great.It has great download speed and it is easy to use.I decided to give this Vuze app a try even if some of the reviews from this site are not positive. During Vuze installation i read carefully all the texts and i denied all the additional offers. In the end no suspicious program was installed on my pc, my search engine did not change and no toolbar was installed. So everything is ok. 5 stars for Vuze!
