Editors' Review


Deluge has been around forever, and it can be as simple or as powerful as you want it to be. That's because it's extendable via plug-ins, which effectively enable you to build your own personalised version of Deluge. Fancy something that resembles uTorrent without the unwanted software?

Want to add alphabetical downloading, move downloaded files to specific directories according to the file type, adjust speed according to network conditions, create pretty graphs, schedule everything, integrate with Chrome or Firefox, or batch-rename downloads? That's not a problem either. It's attracted some criticism over the years, however: Make sure you read each step of the installer carefully and uncheck any software you don't want to install.

That aside, uTorrent is useful, effective and doesn't gobble up too much of your system's resources: Although it isn't the official BitTorrent app, it's been maintained by BitTorrent for the last decade. It's worth noting that uTorrent has a record of security problems, the most recent of which had the potential to let hackers control key functions of the client and spy on users' downloads.

BitTorrent has since released a patch for the vulnerability. Enough for me to loyally stick with them for years. Cons Sadly, they have designed their most recent package to "blank out" part of the page where you can "choose" whether or not to install their malware-like side products, such as whatzit defender or whatever it is.
