ΜTorrent Classic. (Stable 1.8.7 Build 45548) Get the original Mac torrent download client for the desktop. For Mac ( 4.07 MB) English (US) – 5/20/2020. Not compatible with MAC OS Catalina Version 10.15 and above. UTorrent is a free lightweight client developed and maintained by BitTorrent for Windows, macOS, and Android devices. With it, users can search for and download torrents, stream them while they’re still downloading, and play them using a built-in player when completed.
An excellent torrent client Mac alternative for uTorrent is Folx, especially if you’re a user of macOS 10.15 or higher since uTorrent’s older app is incompatible with newer operating systems. The incompatibility is due to the lack of 64 bit support. Those looking for a solution can find it in Folx, since it does support Apple’s newest macOS Monterey, and is continually being updated.
Folx features a tagging system that will allow you to tag files downloaded, allowing quick access to downloads at a later time. Browser support to download links directly from the web is a feature of Folx and browsers currently supported include Safari, Firefox, Opera, and Chrome.
Download via Proxy is also available allowing users to download anonymously, this includes downloads not normally available through your IP address. However, only regular downloads and not torrents can be accessed through Proxy with Folx.
The PRO version of Folx has a host of features to make the experience more in-depth. Speed control is included and allows you to either adjust download speeds manually or allow Folx to do so automatically. A scheduler is an additional perk of the PRO version of Folx, it allows the setting of time and day for a download.
The PRO version also remembers login info for websites, downloads videos, and has music integration to automatically import downloaded music into Apple Music.
Folx provides the functionality users expect from uTorrent but with support for upgraded operating systems. Folx is a wonderful 64 bit replacement for uTorrent and comes with impressive additions.
uTorrent can still be used by users of Big Sur, Catalina and Monterey, but only in the form of uTorrent Web, a browser-based torrent downloader. While it includes a handful of features found in the older uTorrent app, it does require your browser to be open in order to function.
