µTorrent

While I don’t generally condone using bitTorrent clients, for the simple reason that they are mostly used for sharing illegal material, I have really enjoyed µTorrent.

For those who don’t know, torrents allow you to download a file (or “torrent”) from different locations, called either peers or seeders.   Peers are users who have bits and pieces of the file you want to download, while seeders are people who have complete copies.  As you download from the different peers and seeders, you upload pieces that you have downloaded.  Thus, users can download different pieces of the file from each other until everyone has the complete download.

Here are my top 3 P2P filesharing clients:
