µTorrent Web is the µTorrent-web-browser version of the famous classic µTorrent software. µTorrent Web was released in 2005 and is now owned by BitTorrent, Inc. This µTorrent online version includes many handy features like an integrated search engine and more. We will explain the differences between µTorrent web vs. classic and why this version is interesting.

What are the key features of uTorrent Web?

  • Reliable peer-to-peer torrent windows client: µTorrent Web allows you to download all types of shared files through peer-to-peer.

  • On-download playing: µTorrent Web lets you play multimedia, video, or audio files while the file is being downloaded. This is a really useful streaming-like feature if you want to start watching content whose download is not finished yet as the first chapters of a series' season, or simply if you want to check you are downloading the right file.

  • µTorrent Web optimization: The µTorrent Web app is a fast client and it only consumes a few resources compared to other software.

  • Fine-grained settings: µTorrent Web's settings allow you to control the transfer speed (upload and download) in case you need to use bandwidth for other tasks or if your internet connection is limited.

  • Clever integrated search engine: Its integrated search engine gives you the possibility to find torrents directly from the µTorrent Web client. Of course, you can also add them manually to the client.

  • Grouped selection: If a torrent contains several files, you can select one or several files instead of having to download them all at once.

  • Security: The µTorrent Web app contains a security analysis tool to ensure safe downloading.

  • Flexible payment options: µTorrent Web offers payment with BitTorrent cryptocurrency (BTT) to increase the download speed of torrents, as well as the possibility of earning cryptocurrencies if you allow other anonymous users to download your downloaded content.
