Tired of uTorrent? This software that I have recommended for a long time has become much less efficient. Since the acquisition by the company BitTorrent, uTorrent has continued to accumulate defects: excessive resource consumption, strange additional software, etc.

qbittorent is a torrent client that lovers of early versions of uTorrent will love it. It is light, simple and offers practical and clear options. This software was launched in March 2006 by Christophe Dumez during his thesis at the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard. Since then, its development has been sustained.

Its main functionalities can be found in its integrated search engine (Allowing searches on several torrent directories simultaneously), IP address filtering, priority management of torrents as well as the files they contain, remote control via a secure web interface.

qBittorrent aims to be lightweight from a CPU and RAM usage perspective. he is also cross-platform with compatibility with operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD.

Nothing extraordinary in terms of network configuration; speeds and numbers of assets in download and upload, number of simultaneous connections, proxy.

It is compatible with DHT, RSS feeds and magnet links. The icing on the cake, this last one is open source and completely in French. Maybe it's time for a change of dairy.
