Vuze 5.5.0.0 / 5.5.0.1 Beta 2

Multi-platform BitTorrent client designed to help its users to search for and download content via a peer to peer transfer platform
Torrent files remain one of the fastest way to share large files with your friends over the internet. Vuze is a torrent client that provides support for end-to-end transfers between computers.

Java based cross-platform BitTorrent client

Vuze requires the Java Runtime Environment and, as a result, you must make sure it is present on your Mac before launching the Vuze installer.

During the installation process, you can customize the app’s interface, but you will also encounter installation agreements for third party software, so make sure you read everything carefully before moving forward.

The Vuze interface is quite clean and organized: the left side panel enables you to quickly browse your content, while the main area provides information about your torrents.

Low-key status bar menu for easy and quick access

Moreover, Vuze comes with a minimalist status bar menu that allows you to access the main window in no time. The same menu offers you the possibility to open a transfers bar window (for easy monitoring) and includes transfers management tools (stop, start, pause, resume).

Furthermore, Vuze is also capable to open specific magnetic links or torrent files (you can choose to send the torrent files to Vuze directly from your browser) or you can find new content via the built in search bar. Furthermore, you can subscribe to automatically receive notifications about similar content.

Preview videos while downloading

Additional Vuze features include the possibility to play video torrents as they download or to scan the content in real time in order to detect malware or other threats. The user can also burn DVDs within the application.

The Vuze uninstallation process is quite straight forward: like with any other Mac application, simply drag the Vuze icon from your Application folder to the trash. To complete the process, navigate to the Users//Library/Applications Support folder and delete the Vuze directory.

Full-featured and user-oriented torrent client for the Mac

Vuze does not simply perform peer-to-peer transfers: it comes with an extensive list of tools and features that can make your torrent downloading experience more complete, if you are willing to go the extra mile.
