Editors' review

For a torrent-downloading app, Azureus is chock-a-block full of features that set it apart from the rest of the pack.

From XML torrent options to IP filters, firewall tests to UPnP plug-ins, Azureus leads the way in making the torrent experience as customizable as possible. When you install the program, it gives you three levels of option settings, for beginner, intermediate, and advanced controls. There's a configuration wizard, an easy-to-use torrent maker, and dozens of ways to set your statistics logs so you can track download speed and performance.

The layout could benefit from larger buttons. Nevertheless, it's uncluttered and the icons are straightforward--none of those unhelpful "sad face" icons to stop the torrent. In the past, the Java architecture has been a fatal flaw, with Azureus porking out and consuming resources as if they were pies in an eating contest. It's still a major processor drain, but the latest version isn't anywhere near as bad as earlier ones have been, and we recommend this app to advanced users.

    "It was good until the update screwed up the system"

    September 25, 2014

    Version: Vuze 5.4

    Pros

    WAN streaming

    Cons

    Installs unwanted (looks like malware) browser addons.
    Changes browser settings.
    No easy way to undo (spent a few hours cleaning up the system after regular Vaze software update.

    Summary

    After regular software update, it installed bunch of addons to every browser on my system, and changed the browsers settings. Had to do factory reset every browser as no "undo" provided with the software.
    Unistalled Vuze right away, it served good, but can't be trusted.
    Be super careful when installing, check what "express" installation/upgrade means.
