Why would you use anything else?
1 Star = 0 stars in this case. When I download and install a program, I want just that! Even though I was careful declining all the "extras" during the installation prompts, Vuze STILL installed programs without my consent. I don't want a ton of other applications like Optimizer Pro. I just want a torrent client. I regret installing this on my PC, which just had a fresh install of Windows. Now I have to look and find all the crap I DON'T want.
Installs Malware and Adware like Rockettab, a Fiddler2 proxy and another program which highjacks your browsing session. My sessions to Google & Gmail were being intercepted by this proxy. Avoid this program. The P2P portion works great, and I just downloaded several Raspbian images over BitTorrent. But then Fuze updated to a new version and installed several pieces of Malware on my system. The Fuze project owners must be getting greedy.
The moment I installed it, all of my pages reloaded on Firefox and some funky stuff was going on in the redirects. I have also had some mysterious cloudsource.net things appearing in the address bar when stuff isn't working in Chrome. The P2P protocol appears to work fine. But I'd stay away until the security of the download can be verified by someone who is qualified to do so. Recall, 1 is like zero here.
