Dunno, somehow that site seems fishy to me, having advertising on the product page of a company doesn't help. Never heard of it, can't find sources. I never found a client constantly being dramatically (ie >25%) faster than another one, so I fail to see what good another client would be for, since imho there are more then enough to satisfy pretty much anyone's demand.

Thanks avx for your input. Just curious as didn't find any discussion about it in the Forums or in Bugzilla. From their site "news", it appears they have been around a couple of years though. Just noticed that someone was using it on a torrent I was downloading.

Pretty happy with qBittorent at the moment. If someone has had a good experience using it, I might give it a test drive.

Why even bother, if you're happy with your current client? I mean, it's no tool which can make you more productive, it's just there to do it's job. Sure, fast transfers are nice, but provided you've got correct settings, in the end it's all up to the peers and tracker(or DHT/PEX).

There's no magic to be done, as long as it's transferring stuff, it's doing it's thing. In my case, I don't even need a GUI - what for anyway - so I'm just letting rtorrent run as a daemon.

I'm not saying there software is crap or something, just that it doesn't make sense to try it, if you're currently satisfied. It's not a capable thing like an editor, nor some kind of media encoder featuring way better algorithms than the competitors.

Besides, depending on what you're loading, closed source might bite on in the a*s, although in terms of torrents, IPs are mostly anything one needs to bust someone.
