uTorrent is a lightweight BitTorrent client. While the interface has been polished and the overall size remains smaller than your average Facebook pic, µTorrent is now packed with some insanely powerful features:
  • Find: Search for torrents or browse artist-sponsored content, directly from your software interface.
  • Get: Download torrents and manage your files in the torrent manager.
  • Play: It's better than ever with buttons for Play and Stream right where you can see them.

What's New

Version 1.8.4:
  • Fixed crash when adding signed torrent

Installed uTorrent with an old-style .pkg installer (which is completely unnecessary for an app like this. Then I found out why. In both Chrome and Safari it installed a SearchMe extension and changed my homepage and search engine to Yahoo.

I don't know how well the torrenting function of this works, because the first thing it does is, go to two different sites I did not give it permission to do, and then try to install software that ISN'T µTorrent, and then it started messing with my computer… again, without permission.
This behavior rates it a ZERO, no matter how it performs otherwise!
If you stop it from doing any of this, it won't install the app…
No matter how you obtain this, it's apparently not available as a real install package.
WOW!
(obtained both from MU and the µTorrent website)

uTorrent installs, (without you knowing), a Firefox Addon called "SearchMe"... and also changes your Safari home page to Yahoo.
I used to use uTorrent on Windows long time ago, but, for now, on my Mavericks, no way.

It comes from the BitTorrent protocol creators I learned, so I guess it would be the most updated. I don't really like it usability wise, but I am just getting use to torrenting... so it might take a while.

Is this Torrent client for very advanced users? I've used FrostWire before for torrents and there you just search what you want and the options to download come up underneath. I've tried to search in uTorrent, and nothing happens!

Do you need to have the torrent downloaded already?

That blows....I haven't tried the new version yet but if it doesn't work with BTGuard I'll need to try and find an older version to revert to.

Love uTorrent…it is my go-to torrent client, but the new lime green icon introduced in v1.8.3 (stable) ain't got no alibi, it is U-G-L-Y!!!

Please bring back the PRE-1.8.3 uTorrent icon, this new one really NEEDS to go! Pretty please?!?

Copy/paste the old icon into the new version. Problem solved?

Aadams77

Unfortunately, no. The copy/pasted icon stays, but only while uTorrent is inactive. A few seconds after launch the NEW icon replaces the copy/pasted icon and remains there until application quit.

The v1.8.4 icon is the SAME freakin' ugly lime green!

uTorrent > ((Control + Click)) > Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources

Then change the icon from within the app itself. The icon stays the same unless it's downloading or uploading something because the app icon shows you the bandwidth activity on the icon itself, which can't be changed by just copying and pasting the app icon itself. You have to change all the associated icons from within the package contents. So yes... it's possible to do this... but it takes some fudging.

You need to change the download directory in the preferences.

Older version was better. I find the latest version ties to hard to make money with pro upgrades, toolbars, etc.
