It isn’t often that a new torrent site comes along and actually manages to impress, but Torrent Butler is certainly one worthy of note. The site offers a wide range of movies, presented in a way that’s quite refreshing and unique. Born out of frustration with “authorized” movie download sites, Torrent Butler may both frighten and inspire the MPAA’s major movie studios. Torrent Butler is one of those sites that is better explained by visiting, rating than describing it.

Click to view BitTorrent is the go-to resource for downloading everything from music and movies to software and operating systems, but as its popularity continues to grow, so do the number of tools available for making the most of it. Some are must-haves, while others are a waste of time. Climb aboard for a look at 10 of the best BitTorrent utilities, tools, and resources for finding and managing your BitTorrent downloads quickly and efficiently. 10.

Click to view You're a BitTorrent freak, so why should you let a little thing like being away from your home computer stop you from getting your fix? Using the popular, free uTorrent client , you can control your BT downloads from anywhere using a full-featured web interface. With uTorrent's WebUI, you can add, remove, and manage the downloads you've got running at home no matter where you are. Hit the jump and I'll show you how to get it all set up. NOTE: uTorrent is Windows-only, but you can access and control uTorrent via the WebUI using virtually any browser on any platform (except for IE6, that is, which "is not supported and never will be").
From Wired How-To Wiki These days, nothing worries an internet service provider more than peer-to-peer file trading. Depending on where you live, P2P can account for between 50 and 75% of broadband internet traffic. We mostly have the popularity of BitTorrent to thank for this crazy amount of data going to and fro. This amount of traffic can raise the ISPs daily costs of delivering service, cause congestion either in your neighborhood or on the ISP's network, and force the ISP to buy increased bandwidth capacity. But if you've been paying close attention to your BitTorrent transfers lately (or if you've simply been reading the news) you'll notice that ISPs have begun to take drastic measures to slow that flood of data currently clogging up their pipes.
Note: If you are new to uTorrent and don’t know how to download files, see this tutorial. Another note: It appears that some users (probably only Azureus) are being asked for a username/password for authentication when opening the torrent. Just clicking “Cancel” on that window seems to work fine. Yet another note: Please don’t post support issues here, this is not the official troubleshooting forum.
1. Tixati Tixati is a slick and fast torrent program authored by the architect of the WinMiX OpenNap program. Definitely a sophisticated and forward-thinking client, Tixati is already embracing the shift towards trackerless torrent swarming: magnet links, PEX, and DHT swarming works very well in Tixati.
More and more ISP’s are limiting and throttling BitTorrent traffic on their networks. By throttling BitTorrent traffic the speed of BitTorrent downloads decrease, and high speed downloads are out of the question. The list of ISP’s that limit BitTorrent traffic, or plan to do so is growing every day, and according to the BBC , the ‘bandwidth war’ has begun. Are you not sure if your traffic is being throttled Check the list of bad ISP’s .
