I've been using this program since the early days, and have always been impressed with the UI, the range of options, and the speed and lightweight on my mediocre systems. The devs also respond well to bug reports and continually work to improve the program. There's never been any bundled ware either. As a windows user (I know :( this is always one of my basic programs I install first. It's even on Ninite now, so yeah, it couldn't be easier. It warms my heart to see this program blasting out 130,000 downloads by midweek. That should give you an idea of the ever-growing popularity of QBittorrent. If you are looking for a fast torrent client, with lots of bells and whistles but a smooth (qt) interface, go for this. You won't be disappointed.
After having used it now for a couple weeks (every day user), it's an excellent replacement for uTorrent. It is my first choice and remains the program associated with .torrents and magnet links. I had no use for connecting to my torrent server remotely, thus Deluge's client/server setup didn't interest me. I can control qbtorrent with my remote desktop software when I'm away.<br> The most difficult thing to adjust to (and i don't think i ever will) is the single-click max/min toggle with the tray icon. It makes sense on paper but since all the other proggies use a double-click and have forever, I invariably double-click it. I can't find an option anywhere to change that behavior. Sounds minor but it's frickin' annoying and there has been much cursing. Also, when you do single-click it, if there's another program up, it will come in behind it.<br> Deluge was also a great choice and is the superior choice for somebody who wants to connect to their torrent server from multiple devices or to connect to multiple servers. It allows for use in a thin-client/server-daemon configuration or the regular app run at user level config. I prefer the client/server config to using a webui.<br> -----------------------------<br> Most of us use a detailed list sorted by date for the downloads folder so the small .torrent icon needs to be easily identifiable. Would you change the icons to have "classic icons" option similar to the uTorrent icons... a green box/globe with a "q". The old green uTorrent icons were easier to spot in the herd.
Tweaked Tixati to no end -> still markedly slower than qBit.
Every time qbittorrent 3.1.8 starts I have to force recheck every torrents from (already mounted) ntfs volumes. After rechecking it shows 1200, 500, 600 ratio for torrents. This program is unusable under linux.
Very good replacement of the utorrent
