UTorrent

µTorrent, or uTorrent  is a freeware, ad-supported, proprietary BitTorrent client owned and developed by BitTorrent, Inc. The program has been in active development since its first release in 2005. Although originally developed by Ludvig Strigeus, since December 7, 2006, the code is owned and maintained by BitTorrent, Inc. The code has also been employed by BitTorrent, Inc. as the basis for version 6.0 and above of the BitTorrent client, a re-branded version of µTorrent. All versions are written in C++.

 

Size

µTorrent is shipped as a single stand-alone compressed executable file, installed at first run. Recent versions have included the ability to

Size 8.69 MB (Android)
2.09-2.23 MB (Linux)
1.66 MB (Microsoft Windows)
1.29 MB (OS X)

install themselves on first run. Small executable size is achieved by avoiding the use of many libraries, notably the C++ standard library and stream facilities, and creating substitutes written specifically for the program. The executable is then compressed to roughly half of its compiled and linked size using UPX.

 

Paid version
On July 15, 2011, BitTorrent announced that they would offer a paid version of µTorrent called “µTorrent Plus”. This new version would offer extra features, such as integrated file conversion, anti-virus and a built in media player. On 6 October 2011, the Pre-alpha of µTorrent Plus was released to an invitation only community. As of December 2011, µTorrentPlus 3.1 was available for $24.95; as of December 2014, the Plus version was available as a $19.95 yearly subscription.

Ads and malware
In August 2012, BitTorrent announced the addition of advertising in the free version of µTorrent which could be individually dismissed by users. Due to response from users, a few days later, the company stated that ads could be optionally turned off. A user-created tool known as “Pimp My µTorrent” was also created to simplify the process of disabling ads in the Windows version. Starting with µTorrent version 3.2.2, the software also contains in-content advertisements described as “Featured Torrent”. As with ads, it is possible to disable this content.
In March 2015, it was alleged that µTorrent had automatically installed a program known as Epic Scale—a program classified as “riskware” by some security programs, which mines the cryptocurrency Litecoin in the background for BitTorrent, Inc.  utilizing CPU and GPU power. A µTorrent developer disputed the claim that it was automatically installed, and claimed that as with all other “partner” programs bundled with the software, users could decline the installation. On 28 March, Epic Scale was permanently removed from the installation and as a software bundle partner.

Labels
Labels are an easy way to organize your torrents, much like folders. It’s a simple tag name that you can give a torrent, which then puts the label in the sidebar for easy access. Multiple torrents can all share the same label, so you can sort things into say, “music”, “books”, “featured content”.

To use them, right click on the torrent and mouse over “Labels”. The rest is self-explanatory. You can even drag and drop torrents into labels once they’re created.
