Transmission is an open source BitTorrent client, with all the basics for downloading in the simplest way possible.
The easiest option for downloading
To download the files, first of all you need to download the torrent file or use magnetic link web pages.
When you have the torrent, open it with Transmission: you’ll see all the files that are included in the torrent, so you can choose to download individually what you want, and choose the folder where you want them to be saved to, as well as other options. As you add to the program, a Dock window will appear, and the download will begin.
Transmission comes with a graphical interface, which is really simple and intuitive, and the program includes few options, for fast and uncomplicated downloads. You won’t find any pop-up or full-screen ads appearing unexpectedly either.
Control every little thing
The configuration options are based on being able to control the speed of upload and download of files, and the number of files that can be downloaded simultaneously in the download queue. You can also prioritize a download, by moving active downloads up and down the queue.
The program uses Growl and Dock notifications, so you’ll know when downloads are completed, or any other statuses.
