Turbo Torrent

Over the past few months, BitTorrents have been evolving around the Internet, spreading like fire. As another form of file-sharing technology, BitTorrent centered on de-centralised file-sharing servers, where users who download any files, are also acting as servers to share parts of the pieces that they download.

With BitTorrent gaining popularity, there are a number of BitTorrent clients which you can choose from, i.e. uTorrent, BitComet, Azureus and BitTornado. In addition, Turbo Torrent also joins the file-sharing market with its own client software.

Turbo Torrent is a P2P file-sharing freeware fully compatible with Bittorrent, designed for high-speed distribution of large files.

It is a powerful, clean, fast, and easy-to-use application, supporting simultaneous downloads, download queue, selected downloads in torrent package, fast-resume, chatting, disk cache, speed limits, port mapping, proxy, ip-filter and more.

Compared to most of other BitTorrent clients, Turbo Torrent is the only Bittorrent client that comes complete with a built-in Web based Torrent Search Engine, so you can search for files directly using the software itself.
