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.

"ram usage "

March 13, 2007  |  By pr0w3ss

 |  Version: BitComet 0.84

Pros

i do agree i use to be a long time bitcomet user. it is a good client. but... utorrent is better. and this is why... even on bitcomet check the peers list and many of them will say they are using utorrent. and i havent gone back to bitcomet yet. this is taken from the utorrent website.

Micro-Sized Yet Feature Filled

Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Azureus 2.4.0.0 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange.

Resource-Friendly

µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources - typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren't there at all. Additionally, the program itself is contained within a single executable less than 170 KB in size.

take my word for it.

Cons

"Problem with: Language Encoding"

March 12, 2007  |  By boaz_s

 |  Version: BitComet 0.84

Pros

Version 0.82 was OK.

Cons

If you are using hebrew language you will not be able to write hebrew letters in the internet explorer browser.

I made unIinstall to this version (0.84) and the problem solved.

"very bandwidth hungry"

March 06, 2007  |  By omtechno

 |  Version: BitComet 0.84

Cons

Though no apparent download/upload going on OR scheduler stopped all torrents -- still it will eat up full upload bandwidth. While downloading, if not properly set will open up over 50 half connections and consume bandwidth. very bad design.
