Works ok on my XP setups, though it is not as stable or easy for me to use as Utorrent.

Still, for basic stuff, this version is better than Azureus, at least for me.

Finally the crashing on exit has been fixed! My favorite torrent app. Everything else is just too bloated.

I used this until the end of last year. It old then, and it had been old for some time before then. The author keeps promsing a new interface, but at this point I don't see any reason to go on with it. There are tons of established clients that are simply better than 'Tornado, and the author will have to play a lot of the catch-up game. Why bother?

I prefer uTorrent, but if that's not your thing, there are many other clients out there that are better than this. It's buggy, old, and inefficient. Let it die.

THREE years ago I praised this program as the best BitTorrent program. The LIGHT was a genious idea. Piece selection was radical! Rate limiting was smart! Heck, it even INVENTED super-seeding.

As far as I'm concerned he hasn't done anything to this program in that time. It looks exactly the same.

though i have little experience in BitTornado,i can see that it is quite fast. however,i find that the interface is not very organised. i like its old school look,but the info isnt displayed very well and there are little features it seems. i am not one to judge this client due to my lack of experience in using it,but from my little knowledge,i believe that uTorrent is a better client

http://www.slyck.com/news.php?story=1117 read this article on slyck.com U torrent is an average client nothing special. it might have better guis but not as fast as bit tornado 3.15. U torrent is also sold out to anti p2p people having a french company PeerFactor, which was a subsidiary of French anti-piracy group RetSpan. wow bit tornado is much more fast and much more secure than u torrent. I suggest the u torrent fanatics read slyck more ofter before they berate bit tornado. i hate to have the mpaa or their cousins dutch wannabe brein come knocking on my door because of the bit torrent client I used aka u torrent. I used u torrent personnally it sucked. bit tornado rules

BitTornado is old school. It works ok but it's pretty hard to use it with uTorrent and Azureus available.

Azureus is the best client although it uses to much memory and slows my computer down. Mainly the need for Java which is horrible on windows. uTorrent is newer and lighter weight client which doesn't use java, it's probably the best windows client.

Both utorrent and AZ have added encryption in the endless game of cat and mouse with isp and networks trying to block torrent traffic.

To the idiots bashing utorrent: the client is not the determining factor in how fast you download, it's your connection.

And I have never had utorrent crash on me even ONCE and I've been using it since version 1.0

Though i have tried BitTornado and it crashed on the first time i started it.

Just because utorrent's light doesn't mean it's lightweight.

Changes:
still no new GUI, been working on the engine
resume w/ disabled files fixed
tracker crashing bug fixed
security added to prevent clients from
exploiting super-seed

Agreed, uTorrent is not as stable nor as fast as this client, the interface is the only thing I find worth liking from that client.

ecjs go to your utorrent and get lost, don't comment other clients if you like that lightweight crap client.

This client is very good better than Utorrent.

its alright good speeds and all but damn near every time i close it an error report message always pops up and it even does that as im downloading something sometimes, needs to be more stable

ecjs
I don't think your preference to a less stable client justify a bad rating review for this one.
