What's the best BitTorrent client you've used? I'm currently using Azureus. I can see all the files within the torrents and their download statuses so it's pretty decent. I also once used ABC but I didn't like in. Then I've heard that Bitlord is the best client out there, since it has a search feature and it's supposedly fast.

How about you?

Shareaza, is a great program, it provides heaps of features, such as being able to see the different sources, and search for torrent files, pause torrents or use links to torrents.
It's also a great file sharing program, all in one, I really like it.

I'm using BitComet but I am thinking to change it to Azureus.

I use both Azureus and ABC. Azureus is quite stable and user friendly but sometime ABC is better depending on the tracker your are connected to.

The good thing about ABC is that you could specify your sharing ratio so that you could queque several downloades one at a time as not to overuse your bandwidth just for downloading and seeding.

I use g3. It's not bad, it does all I need so I never bothered to try Azureus.

I got Bittornado. Dont know why, its one step better than the original bittorrent. Azureus lets you choose which files you wanna download, so that even better!

I can't remember where I saw it, or if it's even in any decent degree of stability yet, but there is a project somewhere called MozTorrent. It essentially expands the Firefox or Mozilla (possibly also Galeon, Epiphany, Konquerer, Camino, Netscape, etc.) download manager to allow for direct torrent downloads from the webpages. A quick google finds me the moztorrent mailing list info page, but I'm sure I've seen more detailed stuff than that at some point (the mailing list hasn't been posted to...).
