When I download torrents on a PC, I exclusively use uTorrent as my application of choice because it is dead simple to use and really lightweight on system resources.

Since moving to a Mac, I’ve tried several torrent downloading apps like Vuze and Transmission and only settled on Transmission because there really wasn’t any better alternative that mimicked the look and feel of uTorrent on the PC.

Well, now that game has officially changed with uTorrent’s release of a beta app for the Mac.

Already I’m liking the single-window interface where information on each torrent is shown below the status window. It’s just better to deal with less windows and have everything on the screen in front of you. I’m not sure if I’m willing to switch to a beta program yet, but uTorrent for Mac definitely looks promising. I’ll see how development goes…
