Going off features, stability, and being free with no catches. I tried XTorrent, which has all the features I could want including searching torrent sites directly from the torrent client but the cost of $25 to register it and get rid of the ads and throttled connections is not cool. I love the clean look of it though. Anything worth using, cause uTorrent doesn't have the search feature

You are talking legal torrents right?

of course, a lot of sites are using torrents to download, like libreoffice, etc

I like using Transmission, but I don't think it's what you're looking for (since you want a search feature).

im considering using it, i wasn't a huge fan when I used it on Linux.  I like features like RSS Feed, Magnet links, etc. I can always just goto the web to search, just would be convienent to search from the application

I use uTorrent, it is made from the creators of Bittorrent for Windows, does the job ;)

yeah i been using it too, but guess I want something designed to work with Mac OS better :)
commented May 30, 2012 by Juancastim135 (410 points)

by working better you mean by what?

I wish to have certain downloads go in certain directories, i would love a integration with iTunes which I use a lot

What about Vuze? http://www.vuze.com/

Large foot print, I think I may try using Transmission and manually move finished files around

uTorrent or Bittorent. I don't trust anything else.

The special thing about uTorrent it's that it's better known and it's smaller in file size than Bittorent.
