BitTorrent vs. uTorrent

BitTorrent was the first of the two programs to implement the BitTorrent protocol within its programming when it was developed in 2001. uTorrent was purchased by BitTorrent, Inc. only five years later in 2006.

BitTorrent allows having multiple downloads of multiple files running at the same time. on uTorrent users can only download single files while their other files have to wait in the queue.

uTorrent is lightweight, works on more operating systems than BitTorrent, and with ads removed it makes a great experience for downloading torrents.

Performance and Speed

BitTorrent has won the speed test against uTorrent, considering that third-party ads can slow download speed on the latter one. While tested using BitTorrent the download speed exceeded 76kB/s, but on the uTorrent client didn’t go faster than  12kB/s.
