    Here are the ones most people use for macs...

    Azureus - most common ... most similar to uTorrent... what I use
    Transmission - I've never used it
    Bit Rocket - Never used it
    Tomato Torrent - very simple and easy to use... too simple for me
    xTorrent - search and download all in one... fun, but just OK
    Bits on Wheels - I tried it, bt went back to Azureus

    On my MBP, I use Azureus (for OiNK compatibility). It's a bloated pig, though. I installed one of the newer betas of uTorrent onto my desktop PC (which I use as a server) and enabled the "WebUI" feature of it so I can access / control it through the internets from my MBP wherever I'm at. I can then copy whatever torrents I finished from my desktop PC to my MBP either through my wireless network, or through my FTP server. Works like a charm :hs: Supposedly uTorrent is to be ported to OSX, which will be nice. This setup works great now though as I can add, start, stop, pause torrents on my home server through the internet with my laptop, no matter where I am. :hs:

    I prefer Transmission, but use Azureus so that I can get stuff from Oink.

    Because there's no such thing as Azureus Pro, that's why.

    BitsOnWheels is my fav by far, but Oink doesn't support it. I use my PC (eek) for downloading torrents for the most part anyway as it's my fileserver ATM.
