ABC (Yet Another BitTorrent Client)
ABC is a free software , open source BitTorrent client based on BitTornado . It supports a queueing system with priority, global and local (per torrent) preference setting for downloading torrent (including upload and download rating limit), three upload options to do with completed file, and a system named Upload Rate Manager (URM) to force torrents out of queue if there is not a pre-set amount of upload activity. There is also an extensive web interface in ABC, allowing for other applications to view and change torrents and preferences remotely. It is written in Python using wxPython .

Usage Share Of BitTorrent Clients
The USAGE SHARE OF BITTORRENT CLIENTS is the percentage of users that use a particular BitTorrent client , regardless of version. CONTENTS * 1 2015 * 2 2009 * 2.1 Delft University of Technology * 3 2007 * 3.1 Digital Music News * 4 Notes 2015Lifehacker , a software weblog , took a survey of 13,823 readers' preferred BitTorrent clients in May of 2015. IT showed that μTorrent still maintains a sizable lead over competitors, despite concerns over adware and bloatware. Runner-up Transmission was praised for being lightweight, while qBittorrent was praised for being cross-platform and open-source, Deluge for its plugin library, and Tixati for its simplicity. Vuze , another notable client, failed to make an appearance in the top five for the first time

Micro Transport Protocol
MICRO TRANSPORT PROTOCOL or µTP (sometimes also UTP) is an open UDP -based variant of the BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing protocol intended to mitigate poor latency and other congestion control issues found in conventional BitTorrent over TCP, while providing reliable, ordered delivery. It was devised to automatically slow down the rate at which packets of data are transmitted between users of peer-to-peer file sharing torrents when it interferes with other applications. For example, the protocol should automatically allow the sharing of an ADSL line between a BitTorrent application and a web browser

BitTorrent Tracker
A BITTORRENT TRACKER is a special type of server , one that assists in the communication between peers using the BitTorrent protocol . In peer-to-peer file sharing, a software client on an end-user PC requests a file, and portions of the requested file residing on peer machines are sent to the client, and then reassembled into a full copy of the requested file. The "tracker" server keeps track of where file copies reside on peer machines, which ones are available at time of the client request, and helps coordinate efficient transmission and reassembly of the copied file. Clients that have already begun downloading a file communicate with the tracker periodically to negotiate faster file transfer with new peers, and provide network performance statistics; however, after the initial peer-to-peer file download is started, peer-to-peer communication can continue without the connection to a tracker

BitTorrent Index
BITTORRENT is a communication protocol for peer-to-peer file sharing ("P2P") which is used to distribute data and electronic files over the Internet . BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files, such as digital video files containing TV shows or video clips or digital audio files containing songs . Peer-to-peer networks have been estimated to collectively account for approximately 43% to 70% of all Internet traffic (depending on location) as of February 2009 . In November 2004, BitTorrent was responsible for 25% of all Internet traffic. As of February 2013, BitTorrent was responsible for 3.35% of all worldwide bandwidth , more than half of the 6% of total bandwidth dedicated to file sharing. To send or receive files, a person uses a BitTorrent client on their Internet -connected computer

Peer Exchange
PEER EXCHANGE or PEX is a communications protocol that augments the Bit Torrent file sharing protocol. It allows a group of users (or peers ) that are collaborating to share a given file to do so more swiftly and efficiently. In the original design of the Bit Torrent file sharing protocol, peers (users) in a file sharing group (known as a "swarm") relied upon a central computer server called a tracker to find each other and to maintain the swarm. PEX greatly reduces the reliance of peers on a tracker by allowing each peer to directly update others in the swarm as to which peers are currently in the swarm. By reducing dependency on a centralized tracker, PEX increases the speed, efficiency, and robustness of the BitTorrent

Local Peer Discovery
The LOCAL PEER DISCOVERY protocol, specified as BEP-14, is an extension to the BitTorrent file-distribution system. It is designed to support the discovery of local BitTorrent peers, aiming to minimize the traffic through the Internet service provider 's (ISP) channel and maximize use of higher-bandwidth local area network (LAN). Local Peer Discovery is implemented with HTTP -like messages on User Datagram Protocol (UDP) multicast group 239.192.152.143:6771 which is an administratively scoped multicast address . Since implementation is simple, Local Peer Discovery is implemented in several clients (µTorrent , BitTorrent/Mainline , MonoTorrent , libtorrent and its derivatives, Transmission 2.0, aria2 ). An alternative multicast peer discovery protocol is published as BEP 26, but is not widely adopted since it is considered too complex in comparison

BitTorrent Protocol Encryption
PROTOCOL ENCRYPTION (PE), MESSAGE STREAM ENCRYPTION (MSE) or PROTOCOL HEADER ENCRYPT (PHE) are related features of some peer-to-peer file-sharing clients , including BitTorrent clients . They attempt to enhance privacy and confidentiality. In addition, they attempt to make traffic harder to identify by third parties including internet service providers (ISPs). MSE/PE is implemented in BitComet , BitTornado , Deluge , Flashget , KTorrent , libtorrent (used by various BitTorrent clients not limited to Q BitTorrent ), Mainline , µTorrent , qBittorrent , rTorrent , Transmission , Tixati and Vuze . PHE was implemented in old versions of BitComet. Similar protocol obfuscation is supported in up-to-date versions of some other (non-BitTorrent) systems including eMule

FrostWire
FROSTWIRE is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire . It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including support for the BitTorrent protocol. In version 5, support for the Gnutella network was dropped entirely, and FrostWire became a BitTorrent only client.
