Wassup guys!

I`ve been using UPnP U-0.8.5 Fast Resume Client & Multilanguage because it proved to be fast, but I'm having problems because it's outdated to some trackers......

Can't decide which one to use some told me to try Azureus and Bit Tornado............. can some one tell me if theres another client fast enough, or which is the fastest?

Thanx in advance![/b]

My favorite so far is ABC. Azureus would slow my system down too much, and Bit Tornado I haven't tried yet. I have it ready to install, but have yet to test it.

From what I've heard, Azureus is the best client.

I don't use BT though, so I haven't tested it out myself.

ABC is a good client, and I currently use Azureus but it isnt as easy to use as ABC was.

Those are the only 2 clients I've used.

I use TorrentStorm, myself. Nice interface and relatively easy control of all downloads and uploads/seeds. However I haven't tried any other torrent clients aside from the original version so my reccomendation is rather biased.

Azureus is definetly my favourite bit torrent client. It has the most options and is user friendly. Definetly recommended!

If you like BitTornado, and that's the only client you've used, I would totally suggest Azureus. It has all (if not more) of the same functionality that BitTorrent does, and it improves on a lot of the things that they have in common, like more detailed tracker info, better download progress info, and some other things like that.

I've tried a few clients but I always come back to Bit Tornado. I just seems to work the fastest on my system. However, now I've curious about Azureus..does it have a searching option? ie. can you search for content like other P2P clients?

That would be a very difficult feature to implement using bittorrent.

The only way that I can think of would be to have the client interface with a website that has lists of torrents ... in which case, you may as well simply visit the website.
