Torrent Clients

Huge list of Softwares to download Torrent:

Torrent software’s or clients help you to download .torrent file from internet. They connect to other peers and start downloading files. Now, there are many options for torrent clients, and most of them are free. Though, many of them comes with extra features like you can control the torrent speed, scheduling, download other file formats, searching torrent from the client and so on. Though, my suggestion is to pick one, which you are comfortable with.

I started with Ares first, later moved to Limewire (Which is closed), and then I got to know about Torrent. So, certainly I’m not the early adopted of this file sharing technology, but in last 3 years I have tried many torrent clients and some of them were out of the box. Specially, in my college shared internet very few of them worked great. Specially, I needed to use those clients who uses Socks4/5 proxy to connect and download files, and bitcomet worked perfectly. Later on, when direct download was available, I moved to uTorrent and since that time, it’s one of my best torrent client for Windows. It offers many features like remote control and scheduling which is a real-life saver for many people like me.

Here I’m sharing a big list of  Torrent clients for different type of OS. At the time of writing, I’m trying to cover every popular torrent client for different O.S. If you feel that I missed our your favorite torrent clients, do let us know via comments.
