Editors' Review

+
This free P2P application lets you find and download files using a unique system. On the left side of the three-pane interface, you choose from a long list of Web pages that contain files you can download. Different sites offer different types of files, and the subject matter is usually apparent by the name. When you opt to download a file, a smaller file appears on your desktop, which you then open in BitComet. After a bit of a wait, the application aggregates users that have your requested file and starts a swarm download that gradually grows in sources and speed. We like the enormous variety of files available for download, but aside from paging through categories, there are not many ways to search for specific files. Still, the addition of a preview function helps. The BitComet client offers chat capabilities, stats trackers, and the ability to bookmark your favorite sites. Overall, we think BitComet and the BitTorrent system are a great alternative to most file-sharing apps, and the fact that this download is free sure doesn't hurt.

"Best of the best downloader."

March 11, 2014  |  By arcnet29

 |  Version: BitComet 1.37

Pros

Fast and multiple downloads, u can download almost any video streaming from any site, (Need to integrate with Firefox or install comet bird). Top notch download speed moreover it automatically resumes the download. Torrent download is also good, and has Godspeed compared to other p2p softwares. Moreover u can create an account and gain points and other stuff.

Cons

Only in some cases while downloading .exe files it was not able to download properly.

Summary

I have been using it for 3 years now and is probably the best download manager, torrent downloader, video downloader, and I haven't faced much problem with this.
