BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer (P2P) client designed to efficiently manage the downloading of large, high-quality, digital files such as video, music, and games.
The client is used to search the Internet for legal torrent files, which can then be quickly downloaded to a user's machine. As files become more popular, the speed in which they can be downloaded increases through the use of a central tracker and peers. This technology saves time over traditional methods, while maintaining the integrity of the file.
Version 4.20.1 includes new user interface, automatic bandwidth management, download prioritization settings, encryption support, and foreign language support.
