When it comes BitTorrent and P2P software, µTorrent has been a revelation as it is free, lightweight (less than 1 MB) and works faster and smoother than most other software.
The most recent version µTorrent 2.2 Beta sports a revamped new look as you can see in the following screenshot, drop-down menus have been added to the sidebar. You can also add labels to your torrents much like you do in your RSS feed readers. And oh, yeah! utorrent has a built-in RSS feed support so you can use it as a feed reader if you want.
The new beta version includes an option to directly launch the files from the µTorrent. Clicking on the “play” button of a torrent will launch that particular file in the default application that had been associated with that file type that you have downloaded.
utorrent apps is the newest addition to the software, courtesy Project Griffin. You can install apps from the Apps section accessible from the “Apps” menu in the sidebar. If you are a developer, you can participate in the App Developers Challenge and test your luck to see if you could win the $1000 contest.
