azeureus...definitely.
Besides being a fine and simple program it is what Lynne uses if I recall so help is readily available.

Yep, I'm an Azureus user and it is what I would recommend.

Re: what torrent client should i use for mac?

I use Transmission. I wasn't really very happy with Azureus. It seemed to take a long time to load and used a lot of the CPU memory. I do have an older Mac though. I'm really happy with Transmission though, as it allows you to set limits on up/down speeds on each individual torrent, as well as globally, and upon opening a torrent for download it allows you to deselect any files that you don't want included.

My two cents.

Azureus did used to take a long time to load. That used to frustrate me also. But, they've changed something and now it opens really quick.

Re: what torrent client should i use for mac?

I used Azureus for a while but it is a total memory hog & was slow. I have been using Transmission for 6 months now and am in heaven. Very quick, makes its own Torrents & much much more. That's my 2 cents. Peace

Re: what torrent client should i use for mac?

Asuras has now morphed into Vuse and I'm not all that happy with the results. Constantly asking me to load some toolbar that I think has already loaded itself to Firefox. Vuse also appears to be making inroads for more commercial use than what I use it for.

So, what other clients are out there for a MAC?

Re: what torrent client should i use for mac?

Some of you may want to take a look at Deluge. It's a full-featured, cross-platform app, and it's my preferred client (I run it in Linux).

Notes Re: what torrent client should i use for mac?

Vuze sucks!

The versatility & features are not bad - While using Vuze I can do everything classictrader mentioned regarding limits & selecting only specific files but the whole Vuze thing is crap. I do not notice vuze taxing my system too much and the "only" things I would not do while using Vuze is video editing, rendering, bouncing, or burning but I can easily watch or stream HD videos while using vuze "full bore"; but so much of that "vuze" is unnecessary for me and is such a waste of RAM. I know uTorrent uses way less RAM and I like it much better but it is for windows only. I also have not had problems with azureus or vuze "opening" but it does crash on me about 2x a week for the last few months. I have used it for 4-5 years(?) and have never liked it. Does that make sense?

This site is great for info on apps and I use it as a reference.

Thanks a lot for the info & links.

I'm a Azureus/Vuze user here, and I gotta say I like the way everything is setup (IN ADVANCED MODE) the beginner mode is horrible.
