BuzzBadge To BitTyrant - Better Download Speed!

I know this will interest you. Many of us are BitTorrent fans. Downloading torrent is addictive. Ok. I have been using quite some bittorrent client now. The best I found was Azureus, an open source bittorrent client which is fast in terms of download speed.

Now here is a better one! It is called BitTyrant! Believe it or not, it has been downloaded heavily in the past week because it was digged!

BitTyrant is based on the open source version of Azureus. Quoting them:

"BitTyrant is a new, protocol compatible BitTorrent client that is optimized for fast download performance. BitTyrant is...

  • Fast – During evaluation testing on more than 100 real BitTorrent swarms, BitTyrant provided an average 70% download performance increase when compared to the existing Azureus 2.5 implementation, with some downloads finishing more than three times as quickly.
  • Fair – BitTorrent was designed with incentives in mind: if a user is downloading at 30 KBps, they should upload at 30 KBps. However, due to the unique workload properties of many real-world swarms, this is not always enforced. BitTyrant is designed to make efficient use of your scarce upload bandwidth, rewarding those users whose upload allocations are fair and only allocating excess capacity to other users.
  • Familiar – BitTyrant is based on modifications to Azureus 2.5, currently the most popular BitTorrent client. All of our changes are under the hood. You’ll find the GUI identical to Azureus, with optional additions to display statistics relevant to BitTyrant’s operation.
When I got to know about this new release, I downloaded it, found some torrents and tried it out. To my amazement, it was REAL fast! I can finish a 1.2 GB download within 2 days! How good can it be?

Try it out for yourself. Today's BuzzBadge goes to BitTyrant!
