Download and Manage Files Nicely Securely Freely

BitComet is a torrent client that also handles HTTP and FTP file downloads. This makes it versatile but so too does its bevy of settings and options combined with some smart features such as memory versus disc caching seed seeking and file previews. It supports most or all varieties of magnet links on the web today.

Turning Back Wear and Tear

BitComet's most understated and yet unique feature is probably caching the contents of downloads-in-progress in memory. This means it has to perform fewer write actions to a hard disc to finish a download and thus presents a much smaller risk of causing damage to the hard drive (potentially none). This is less applicable if you use an SSD but it still provides other benefits. It includes long-term seeding which basically means it seeks out seeders constantly to ensure your download won't drop when it's nearly complete. Of course BitComet does things like help keep your successful downloads organised too.

Keeping Track

Ultimately BitComet's only weakness is its adherence to the lists and tabs method of torrent client design. There's a huge sidebar for viewing your downloads countless tabs providing information about each one and lots and lots of settings. For users who are used to this sort of thing or can ignore it and especially for users who seek configurability and information plus high-grade features in a torrent client BitComet is a safe choice.
