BitTorrent isn’t new, and that’s good news since torrents work better with
more downloaders and better selection. Macs have been part of the community
from the beginning so its no wonder there’s some nice BitTorrent freeware.
It all started here. The original BitTorrent client is frequently updated
and sports all the essential features you need to download torrents. It’s a
good place to start.
This native cocoa torrent client includes some extras, including
comprehensive stats and a psychedelic visualizer. Like other clients you
can pause and resume downloads. You can even use Bits on Wheels to create
torrent seed files.
This BitTorrent client packs a powerful punch (or splat, if you will) in a
streamlined, fast application. The fastest of the torrent downloaders I
tested, this is a great no-nonsense torrent solution.
This free application augments Tomato Torrent, providing additional options for window placement and file download that make downloading multiple torrents easier.
Torrent Searcher X is a simple program that lets you search multiple sites for torrent files from a single interface. It is a great starting place in your search for torrent files.
Of course torrents can be hard to find. While you’re on the hunt, you’ll want to bookmark Torrentz.com (which searches other torrent sites) and Isohunt.com one of the more popular torrent listing sites.
Happy downloading. Remember to respect copyright laws and all that good stuff.
