    Overall it's a decent product, but it did stop responding for a short time when I was adding a torrent. The interface is very basic and could use a lot of work. I noticed when you hover over the icons there are no labels what they are. Considering that it's not a numbered release 1.x, it's very good. I hope to see more of it in the future.

    Edit:Halite is not an allowed client in private trackers :-(

    READ PLS. (names are replaced by ... )

    It's not an allowed client, so if you use it, you'd be taking all the risk should something bad happen.

    I can never find anything on private bittorrent forums if Halite is an allowed client or not and I dont wanna take any risk.
    Please your kind answer.

    One of the only 64bit torrent clients, and a good one at that. We need more 64bit software.

    Downloaded and installed this piece of software. The first time I ran it I successfully got a win32:Delf-MZG and a win32:ZBOT-MKK Virus on my system. Took two hours to clean out the system and re- download and install 27 programs. Not much to say for this piece of software.
