µTorrent is a lightweight BitTorrent client that includes standard features such as bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT.
µTorrent gets the “µ”(Greek letter “mu”) in its name from the SI prefix “micro-” (meaning “one millionth”), referring to the program’s small memory footprint. The program was first released in 2005 as an open source software, but after being acquired by BitTorrent, Inc. on December 7, 2006, it became closed-source.
µTorrent is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android.
