If you are looking for BitTorrent, you have come to the right place. We explain what BitTorrent is and point you to the official download.
BitTorrent is the official BitTorrent client of BitTorrent, Inc., based from the engine of uTorrent from version 6 onwards. Called Mainline, it was the first client written (in the Python programming language) for the protocol, and was initially made as an open source project (meaning that its source engine can be taken apart by practically anyone, rewritten, and even improved). When the BitTorrent client decided to use the uTorrent engine instead, however, it became closed source, though it still remains a free download; today the BitTorrent client is one of the more popular BT clients in use around the world. It is currently available only for Windows computers and Mac OS X.
The first BitTorrent client was designed in 2001 at the forefront of the BitTorrent project, and the protocol had since developed into one of the most efficient and well-known P2P (peer to peer) technologies across the globe. Aside from having most of the features of new torrent clients, BitTorrent also features a separate program but related to the client, called the BitTorrent DNA (Dynamic Network Accelerator) which speeds up downloads and streaming without having to use a BitTorrent client. BitTorrent itself, meanwhile, can also enable users to create and share torrent files of their own.
