uTorrent is an efficient BitTorrent client for Windows from the originator of the BitTorrent protocol. uTorrent has a lot of the same features as other BitTorrent clients, such as bandwidth prioritisation, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading, and Mainline DHT. uTorrent also works with the joint encryption specification protocol and peer exchange.

uTorrent is a popular BitTorrent client that is known for being lightweight and efficient. It includes features such as scheduling, bandwidth management, and Mainline DHT, as well as a unique protocol that detects and corrects for heavy traffic. However, the application is ad-heavy, which may be bothersome to some users, and there are copyright issues to be aware of as it is illegal to use BitTorrent to post or download copyrighted material. Despite these drawbacks, uTorrent is considered sufficient for most users, with the usual caveats about P2P sharing.
