uTorrent Alternatives (Free Torrent Clients)

uTorrent is one of the best free Torrent clients available. But, it's always good to have options. There are other programs like uTorrent to share files that you own with your friends. Here are the top uTorrent alternatives.

All the below alternatives support:

  • Protocol Encryption
  • DHT
  • Local Peer Discovery (LSD)
  • Peer Exchange (PEX)
  • UPnP
  • NAT-PMP
  • Proxy support
  • Web seeds
  • Global and per-torrent speed limits.

Transmission

Transmission is the go to torrent client for Linux and Mac OS X users. But, you can get it on Windows as well. 

What I like about it is that it does not have annoying ads. It has a simple interface and offers other features such as encryption. It's free to use.

Tixati

If you want something better than uTorrent, then Tixati is a good torrent downloader.

It works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux computers. The client itself is easy to use, ad-free, and malware free.

qBittorrent

A neat little BitTorrent alternative, qBittorent is fast, easy to use, and it's free to use. It's an open-source software alternative to µTorrent.

It does not use too much of your CPU resources. There's a search engine and it works with all the modern OS' as well as OS/2, and FreeBSD.

Deluge

Another torrent downloader like uTorrent is Deluge. It's a fully-featured cross-platform ​BitTorrent client. It is ​Free Software, licensed under the ​GNU GPLv3+.

It's free to use. Free of malware and adware. And, the official website offers plugins to improve functionality.

BitTorrent

BitTorrent, Inc. actually owns uTorrent. But, they also offer a separate torrent client. Both look near identical.

Both free versions make money with ads. And, there is a pro version which removes ads. 

It works on Windows, Mac OS X, Android, iOS and Linux. Find out more on their website.
