Torrent is basically a method that allows you to download large files while connected to the Internet. Using BitTorrent, you can download music, applications, games, videos, and images. You can also share files that are present on your computer with others. uTorrent is a software that allows you to share or download torrent files. A torrent file is responsible for storing metadata used for BitTorrent.
BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) communications protocol which is used to distribute data and electronic files over the Internet. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files, such as digital HD videos files containing TV shows or video clips or audio files containing songs.
The features which are present in other BitTorrent clients are here in µTorrent, including scheduling, bandwidth prioritization, RSS auto-downloading and compatibility with BitComet-Mainline DHT. µTorrent also supports peer exchange and the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Vuze / Azureus 18.104.22.168 and above and BitComet 0.63 and above).Unlike many other torrent clients available, µTorrent does not eat away at valuable system resources; in fact, the program typically runs on approx. 6MB of memory. µTorrent is contained within a single executable file, smaller than 1 MB.
