“Although many Mac users are content with Azurues (Vuze is a bloat, and Java is best not talked about) and Transmission (I don’t like this app, even though a lot of people swear by it), a lot of them have been patiently waiting for µTorrent to make its way to our favourite platform. It has had a strong fan following on the Windows platform and is generally regarded as one of the best torrent clients in existence. So when µTorrent developers talked about the Mac version back in June 2007, there was a lot of buzz. The project was then dropped due to a lack of active developers,” Ashwin Ravindran reports for Smoking Apples.
“However, hope has been restored now as a leaked version of µTorrent makes its way through the very medium that it plans to rule. Marking its first public appearance, which happened a little earlier than expected, TorrentFreak reported the leak of the alpha version to The Pirate Bay, one of the largest public trackers in existence,” Ravindran reports.
“The official version should be out soon. You can even signup at the µTorrent site if you want to be notified as soon as it lands. As should be evident by the nature of its release, this is a very early and unstable version, which is why we’re burdening ourselves with the risk of taking it for a spin and testing it,” Ravindran reports.
