Vuze Bittorrent Client is an end-to-end application for all your torrent needs. Although it is a complete bittorrent downloader, Vuze maintains a lightweight footprint, doesn't slow your computer down, and quickly downloads torrents. Vuze makes it easy for you to find torrents anywhere, whether you are downloading torrents from a tracker site or anywhere else on the web. Once you find a torrent the Vuze Bittorrent Client makes it simple to download torrents and automatically optimizes torrent download speeds. Once your downloaded torrents are finished Vuze makes it straightforward and simple to watch and listen to the content you downloaded. Vuze simply covers anything you'll run into when downloading bittorrent torrents.

I've used bittorrent in the past, but after many issues the past few months I decided to try a couple of others, Vuse and qbittorent. The only positive thing I can say is that Vuse does make it easy to manage downloads. It uses 100% of my cpu and it often freezes changing windows within Vuse.
Vuse is bloated crap, I'm sticking with qbittorent, nothing fancy but effective

Although I agree uTorrent is better in many respects (especially the 2.x branch), I switched to Vuze to take advantage of 3rd party plugins that are available for it. It lets me fully automate my torrent downloads, like auto assign categories and then put them in specific folders based on the category.
Couldn't find a way to achieve that in uTorrent, or any other windows client for that matter.

What is happening with Vuze? When I first starting using it, the info section stated almost 2 million users. Of late, that section shows at most 1 million and usually lower.
So...are you saying that if I use Vuze, and I decry the fact that its installer by default also installs things *other than Vuze*, then according to you I'm a hypocrite? I do not think that word means what you think it means.
Now I'm a fairly savvy guy. I probably could build Vuze from source if I wanted, but why bother? If Vuze or its installer gets too slimy, then it's easier to find another bittorrent program than to muck around with the Vuze source every time an update is released. If you ignore the demands of your users (or trivialize them as hypocrisy), then you're asking for your program and your discussion page to be ignored in turn. :/
Not everybody by a long shot has the skills to compile their own crap free vuze. That had to be one of the dumbest arguments I've read yet, seriously.
vuze is so full of bloat/crap I'm not sure one can call it a bit torrent client anymore. Just some other program that happens to support bit torrent.
Hate me all you want, but vuze just sucks.
Point is, it is possible to create crap-free Vuze installer. But no one does that because NO ONE CARES. If you DO care enough - do it. Otherwise you just don't care enough (which doesn't stop you from complaining - which makes you a hypocrite).
Fact is, at the moment Vuze is the MOST feature-full torrent client. If there is something to do with torrents, Vuze does that (out of the box or with a plugin).
If you DO need something simpler - try Deluge or something from the Gnome world - people there are adept at making simple things (sometimes even too simple).
I would never recommend uTorrent because developers of that piece of software are raping you off. One thing is when you have Microsoft's Windows and Wine just doesn't cut. Another thing is when you have a number of *free* (as in "freedom") BitTorrent clients which do everything you'd possibly want of them - yet you choose uTorrent.
P.S. uTorrent IS pre-packaged with an adware browser search toolbar. Stop being a hypocrite.
If you don't like all the installed crapware build your own version. Are you kidding. Maybe it's time you step out of the basement, notice the sun and become human again.
Better solution, if Vuze doesn't do it for you, whether it's all the crapware, or it's super bloatware or whatever your reason find a better alternative.
Choice is also a beautiful freedom.
I recommend uTorrent, it's simple, has all the features you could want, small size, no bloatware and it just gets the job done.
You don't like that Vuze installer tries to install a lot of crap along with the torrent client itself? That is easily fixable! Download the *SOURCE CODE* of Vuze, *BUILD IT* and install it into your system yourself, because it is *OPEN SOURCE*. Or even better - create an installer without crapware and *SHARE* it with other people, because it's *FREE SOFTWARE*.
What? You don't know how to build software from the source? Then *WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT*? If you can't utilize the freedoms given to you - that's your problem, stick with the crapware-filled installer (most people do).
