Thread: I want BT without spyware

  1. #1
    I just need a BT client, I'm new at this. Two requirements

    Must be free to download and use

    Must be free of spyware and adware

    I looked at BitLord 1.1 and it said on the opening page before install, that it contains adware (atleast they were honest), so I have binned that one.

    I see a thread about Azareus containing spyware, where the OP downloaded it from the Azareus homepage version 2.3 I think. Most replies he got just said it doesn't have spy/adware but that doesn't explain why he got bargain buddy.

    Someone else asked about bitlord, and was told bitlord has crapware, unlike bitcomet, so is bitcomet free of crapware and free to use?

    I just need a recomendation please, and a link to a safe download site.

    I also noted that your dl speed is linked to your ul speed, I think my ISP limits upload speed to something stupid like 20kb/s my connection is 1meg broadband so the MAX I can download at is around 130kb/s what will be the consequenses of my ISP limiting my upload speed?

    Thanks

    use azureus its easily the best, I like the safepeer plugin .

    per torrent download i get about 300 - 500 connection attempts blocked by safepeer!

    Just make sure to uncheck the toolbar during installation or else u will get spyware afterwards..

    Sadly, they just added the new toolbar in the lastest version (.60). Its optional so BitComet can still be clean.
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    Cool

    Just use Rufus 0.64 the latest spinn off the G3 Torrent client that is pretty much dead by now!.

    It is just as advanced as Azureus but lighter on the RAM and CPU and does not require Java as it is Python based. It has one unique function though that is the Web Interface that do require Java. It means you can surf to your home computer from work or school and manage your torrents you can pause delete and add Torrents from a distance if your home computer is left on. The only requirement is that the computer you work from has Java installed!.

    It also has a nice and clean GUI!

    I use Rufus and is my client of choice and unlike G3-Torrent that had some leecher funtions it is not banned from many trackers!.

    You can download Rufus here:

    Many trackers already have bad IP's blocked at tracker level!

    Besides it is just false security and a waste of CPU and RAM!. The Anti Pirates has started to use new methods!.

    Conclusion it is a unnecessary function!
