>uTorrent is by far the most used BitTorrent client around.
>The application generates income by bundling software “offers” during the install process and through in-app banner advertising.
>The banner advertisements are relatively new. Parent company BitTorrent Inc. decided to include these in 2012 in order to increase its revenues, causing uproar among some of its users.
>This week the company has reintroduced an ad-free version of its uTorrent client. In addition to the free ad-supported version there’s now a paid client as well, for which users are charged $4.95 per year.
>Through a paid subscription users can support the developers directly without constantly being subjected to advertising.
>“We’ve been busy experimenting with new ways to improve uTorrent for our users while financially supporting the amazing team that works every day to make uTorrent free for millions of people around the world,” BitTorrent’s Jordy Berson notes.
>The $4.95 version doesn’t come with any of the advanced features that are available in the 19.95 Pro version, but is considerably cheaper.
>“This gives users the option of avoiding any and all ads in the client. It’s exciting to us because it gives users the ability to avoid advertising at 25% of the cost that it used to be – about 5 dollars a year instead of 20 dollars,” Berson says.
>The price setting is definitely reasonable for an application that millions of people use on a daily basis. However, not all BitTorrent users are eager to pay for the products they consume.
>But instead of pirating a copy of uTorrent, these users can also disable the advertisements in the free version of the client, for now at least. The uTorrent team hasn’t said whether this will change in the future.
>The release of the paid tier is part of uTorrent’s efforts to move away from invasive advertisements and bundled software, which led to bad PR in the past.

DL that isn't a virus where (For Madoka)
Why do people force themselves on using μTorrent when they know it's filled with PUPs and Adware, hell, even normies now complain about it but still proceed to use it, like, what the fuck is so special about it that they force themselves on it?
Another reason why rTorrent was AND WILL always be the best BitTorrent client around.
Winblows fags WISH they had this.
>psst. let the normies shoot themselves in the foot, it's only good for us in the end.
you're not wrong, i regret ever teaching anyone how to torrent.
bane of every network i fucking use, when i lived at home fucking parents torrent 24/7 cause they didnt understand the concept of bandwidth, and now theres fuckwits torrenting all the time in dorms and in my apartment block.
the sooner these dipshits get arrested (sans my parents) the sooner i can go back to torrenting on a god damn schedule not interrupting anyone elses god damn internet usage.
That's what I'm saying.
Let them use uTorrent until they get so many viruses and crapware that they stop torrenting.
Don't ever help them.
Piracy should be limited to tech savvy people.
All the normies jumping on board draws in way too much attention.
>probably version 10
Feels good to be FOSS.
>using a public international computer network which would be encumbered by unholy satanic proprietary shitware if not for glorious FOSS
>has to make daily FUD thread so people use his open sores shitware
> Friend got a brand new laptop
> Install him Transmission, tell him uTorrent is shit, has ads and install malware along with the installer (bitcoin miner scandal)
> He's like "ok"
> Few weeks later
> He installs uTorrent
normies are beyond help, they actually enjoy the colorful ads and bloat.
Because it mentions it as a vulnerability in Bittorrent and µTorrent but doesn't list any other torrent clients. So I can only assume it's something that is unique to them after they became the same codebase.
Sounds like a great idea faggot. The reason it doesn't list any versions is that bittorrent inc. is keeping their changelog confidential. You just have to trust them, you dumb fuck (TM).
OH GOD ADDS OH NO
>oh wait, what is this setting?
Transmission is the best. It can run as a daemon. It has the best and most feature complete API. It has the best documentation.
It has the best remote support (Transmission Remote GUI) without having to use a shitty webui.
Transmission is so much better than rTorrent. People who like rTorrent are retarded children who buy "seedboxes" with software pre-installed for them.
Transmission-qt is fine. But personally I use the Transmission Remote GUI to control it because it's ugly as shit. I just keep transmission-qt in the system tray and the remote gui on my task bar.
Works well since I have remote instances of transmission to control also. All my torrent clients are controlled through one interface.
That day will be great because all of the qStalledmeme users will be upset when Transmission becomes the most popular torrent client on /g/ because of that Windows port.
Any week now, 2.90 will be out and Transmission will become the /g/ mainstay. Can't wait.
Is it wrong I paid for this? I get so much free shit from torrents that it just seemed like a drop in the bucket.
>Stalledmeme users will be upset when Transmission becomes the most popular torrent client on /g/
It will be Transmission users the ones who will be upset. Don't you know popular = bad, right?
>mfw jewTorrent users will have to pay money to be able to download more than 10 torrents a month
1. Who cares? I hate subscription model but you don't need to pay.
You'll need to temp. disable the github rule in HTTPS Everywhere due to mixed content blocking.
It aautomates disabling ads
>The year of our lord 2016
>Still using torrents
>Paying for shit clients
>Being Dependant on others people "Seeding" to download tracked things that will get the ISP POOOLEEECE on your ass
>Paying to download torrents
>Not Using glorious Usenet where you can literally download anything with minimal repercussions.
How I do?
I like looking at the countries of people who get big uploads from me.
There's a guy from Switzerland downloading "MM!"
>looking at country flags in a torrent client
Are you me ?
>windows users find it acceptable to have installers shipped with malware, bitcoin miners and adverts
>will the stalling get fixed
>will it use all my bandwidth
>will it stop deleting my torrents
huge expectations from qstalledtorrent
Seeing as this is already a torrent client thread
How do I block IPs of leeches on Deluge? I'm prepared to type out IPs and whatnot, I don't care how tedious it is, but it seems I'm too incompetent to find a guide on how to do it.
Ratio and trackerfags launched this giant campaign against them because it allowed client and ratio spoofing during an era where that shit wasn't as secure as it is now, while the program had a lot of shit in it that made it bloated, the majority of the ire came from MUH SEEDING PURITY fags
Same thing happened when qBittorrent had a spoofing feature too, which was essential to connect to equally-shitty trackers that'd block qBT on principle, but allowed ancient uTorrent versions
this is what i've never understood. "we work hard to make this thing that people use to steal billions worth of software and media, so we should totally be paid for it." fucking lol.
