A while back we brought you the news that Bittorrent had acquired uTorrent (also known as µTorrent), one of the best torrent clients for PC. We argued that it was a good thing because it would give the small torrent company more financial push to keep improving uTorrent and take advantage of the Bittorrent back catalogue and know-how.
It certainly looks like uTorrent has been working hard since the deal was called. While they were the first ones to introduce a Web UI for their torrent client it has now been confirmed that they’re turning towards the Mac platform. Judging from the mini review on TorrentFreak, uTorrent for Mac will have a number of close similarities to its PC version: simple interface, speedy downloads and quick load times. Disappointingly though, the search function should only take you to the Bittorrent.com site. We’re hoping it will feature the customization features and all the download statistics that you get in the PC version. uTorrent faces some stiff competition on Mac though with the likes of Transmission, Bits on Wheels and Xtorrent .
