µTorrent Mac βeta released

Now the lightweight power and performance of µTorrent is available for Apple Mac.

This is beta software, and may contain serious bugs. We think it’s stable enough to share and hope your feedback will help us improve it.

Please share your feedback on our forums.

    Transmission is very reliable, with lots of good features that don’t get in your way, but are there if you need them. And its UI fits beautifully with OS X. Hard to think of a better torrent app for the Mac.

    The µTorrent folks have plenty of catching up to do – and more power to ’em! The better they make their Mac version, the more good Mac apps we have to select from, which is always a good thing.

  2. I use Transmission on my Mac atm but I primarily use uTorrent and nothing beats it… it’s like Transmission and Vuse mixed together and gives me all the power I need out of a torrent program without taking over half of my processor… I can’t wait for it 😀

  3. You seriously telling me I can go back to 2002 on my new MacBook! Wow! Can’t wait to be part of the “swarm!” Maybe I can be lucky enough to pick up a new Limewire, Kazaa or Napster client as well!?! Hopefully I’ll finally be able to dump this Transmission program that’s just been working perfectly?

    You know it’s worth saying that that Mr. Balmer sure does attract the brightest of the bunch to his platforms…I hope he is able to “lead” forever!

  4. Xtorrent has nice search, and I started out with XTorrent.
    However with more then a dozen or so torrents in the repos. it becomes an unstable CPU hog. It can hang itself up over nothing.
    I have yet to see Transmission do that. It’s way more reliable!

  5. Hey guys, thanks for all the recommendations for Transmission. I’m trying it out now, and so far I’m liking it better than Vuse (Azureus). Too early to tell on just one torrent but so far the d/l speed is better than anything Vuse ever did, and the U/I is way less overwhelming.
