BitComet could be a fast and easy-to-use BitTorrent/HTTP/FTP download client. it’s P2P file-sharing software and one in all the foremost popular P2P protocols designed for high-speed distribution. BitComet supports simultaneous downloads, DHT networks (trackerless), a download queue, selected downloads within the Torrent package, fast-resume, disk caching, speed limits, auto port mapping, proxies, and IP filtering. it’s P2P file-sharing freeware and one among the foremost popular P2P protocols designed for high-speed distribution. BitComet supports simultaneous downloads, DHT networks (trackerless), a download queue, selected downloads within the Torrent package, fast-resume, disk caching, speed limits, auto port mapping, proxies, and IP filtering.BitComet allows you to exchange files with other users although it must only be used for those files which might be legally exchanged online. The interface is analogous thereto of eMule with features running down the left pane, control buttons across the highest and therefore the torrents that are downloading within the main window within the center.

Taking a rather different approach to solving the multimedia lover’s dilemma of how best to download torrents is BitComet, which uses an interface heavily cribbed from Windows Explorer–with a dose or two from the fundamental BitTorrent template–to create something instantly recognizable to the user.


Intelligent Disk Allocation: Reduce disk fragmentation.

DHT network: Start BitTorrent download without connecting to any tracker.

Align File to Piece Boundary: Better for creating torrent, fully compatible with old versions.

Intelligent Connection Optimization: Configuration is automatically set to match your connection type.

Intelligent Disk Cache: buffer store is employed to scale back the read/write frequency of your disc drive, increasing device life.

Auto Config ICF (Internet Connection Firewall) and ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in Windows.

Auto Config UPNP port mapping in router (UPnP support is required in router).

Disabling or Setting Priority of files in torrent: Files is skipped for downloading, or set to higher / lower priority, allowing you to pick out which file finish first.

Also support Multi-tracker, DHT, UTF-8 extension, and UDP tracker Protocol v2.

Long-Time Seeding: Speed up downloading and revive dead torrents

Torrent Share: Exchange torrent while downloading

Magnet URI: Start BitTorrent download without .torrent file any longer, using the DHT network.

Preview while Downloading: Preview of .avi .rmvb .wmv and other video files is accessible during downloading process.

Cross Protocol Downloading: have the benefit of HTTP/FTP/eMule download sources while BitTorrent downloading.

There’s a familiar tree of features on the left, including links to torrent-aggregating websites and several other promotional offers. the highest of the app has big buttons with familiar icons, the middle window shows the files being downloaded, and therefore the bottom pane has tracker and peer info. The pane on the correct rounds out the layout, with a torrent search feature and advertising. Among the standard features, BitComet offers chat capabilities, the flexibility to bookmark your favorite sites, a toolbar for Internet Explorer 7, and a context menu for Firefox 2.

Most recently, BitComet are experimenting with a feature that allows you to download some or all of the info in torrents from non-bittorrent sources, or maybe from peers of other torrents with all, or a number of the identical content. Note that this release is additionally the primary bittorrent client to issue a stable 64bit version

While the app held its own against better-known competitors in terms of speed and handling multiple torrents, we found the ever present advertisements to be annoying compared to the competition’s ad-free environs. Overall, we expect BitComet is worth trying and will become a serious torrent app within the future.
