    Well I can say I remember when it was safe to download from, now I can say the same thing about sourceforge (by default) replaces your download with a windows exe junkware program (even the mac version), which installs who-knows-what (which may change based on time of day, where you are, or at the whim of the junkware author). If you are careful you can download vuze. Vuze has it's own junkware, so watch out for that. And by watch out I mean don't run the installer. And by don't run the installer I mean don't install vuze. Find a better torrent client... I don't have a suggestion. On the other hand if you have installed it without installing it (magic, it is already installed) then use classic mode and configure your options correctly. (also you have java installed --- don't let java run in your browser it drastically reduces your security --- [don't confuse java with javascript, they are unrelated]) _ Summery: --- helps mess up your computer, lets you almost download the right (safe) file. [almost like almost don't step on that landmine, it almost didn't explode, and almost didn't kill you --- also you are dead] _ vuze -- a usable torrent program that is capable of downloading torrents, and helps to mess up your computer (but only when you install it, or update it, or reinstall it, or the junkware you installed by accident downloads and installs more junkware) _ (sorry about the lack of paragraphs, apparently this review system doesn't like readability, tried to clean it up a bit got: "Excessive punctuation is prohibited." --- err, ok, I didn't add any additional punctuation)

    The installer loaded my computer up with malware. Not the semi-friendly kind of malware that comes with an uninstaller and only installs because you forgot to uncheck some boxes during the primary program installation, but rather the nasty kind that installs even though you unchecked the boxes, and comes with no uninstaller. In fact, you won't even know the malware was installed until a bit later when you find that your browser's home page and default search engine have been hijacked, and you're getting fake "You're Infected!" pop-ups coming out of the taskbar, and you catch dirty processes trying to access the Internet and your networked computers.

    1 Star = 0 Star. If, and only IF you download directly using wget or curl, and get the REAL program (not SourceForge's Spyware, Adware and Malware pre-installer), and also, IF and only IF you use the CLASSIC UI, then this program is a 4-Star, maybe 5-Star. But, it immediately loses all stars when they opt to use the malware installer from SourceForge (like they dupe most people into doing). Also, the new UI (new for many many years now, when Azureus became Vuze), is disgustingly obnoxious. Ads, trailers, noise, useless garbage that wastes what precious little bandwidth I have. The ONLY reason I still use this program is because I can (somewhat tediously) eventually get it back to the classic settings. It's a downloader. I want it to download files. Efficiently. I don't want to chat on IRC, play video games, make waffles, scan outer space. Just download files. Period. Simple. But the developers are hell bent on making everyone hate this app, for some reason known only to the greedy. It's long since stopped being true Free Software, and become obnoxious bloatware from hell. P.S. I have used this program since the early days, many many years before it became Vuze, WELL OVER A DECADE NOW. So I am not some clueless noob. The core features still work, and there are a lot of configuation options, maybe the best out there. BUT I AM VERY CLOSE TO WALKING AWAY FROM IT FOREVER. Yes, that is how obnoxious this program has become.
