qBittorrent is an excellent client designed to download content to your computer via the BitTorrent network. It’s a program that—unlike other programs—is extremely agile and stable, and has functions for beginners and advanced users alike.

The alternative to uTorrent

All programs have a backstory. In the case of qBittorrent, it’s a program that was released some time after uTorrent was snapped up by the company BitTorrent Inc., and there are similarities. This is a pretty normal occurrence in the internet of today: when you don’t like one program, you can make another that does what you want.

qBittorrent maintains one of the characteristics that boosted the reputation of uTorrent—it’s agility. Added to this are some interesting new features, for example a very versatile search engine that circumvents having to open your browser to search for content. It’s absolutely compatible with all the BitTorrent network protocols, such as DHT, PeerExchange, Magnet, and so on.

Features to suit your needs

As if that all wasn’t enough, qBittorrent has even more features. In theory, it’s able to regulate the bandwidth that the program consumes, manage the IPs you want to connect to your computer, and manage the trackers that are used to contact other computers.

qBittorrent offers a web interface, through which it’s possible to operate the program remotely. If you’re away from home and you want to know how a download is going or add another job, just activate this mode to do everything remotely.

To sum up, qBittorrent is lightweight but very comprehensive. Few programs on the market reach the impressive heights of this one, that is prepared to share and download whatever you need.
