uTorrent Mac Client Leaked



An Alpha version of the long-awaited BitTorrent client for Mac has been leaked, according to a post at Pirate Bay. The application is still in development, but as expected, looks very Mac-like, and reportedly runs better than its Windows counterpart.

BitTorrent’s VP of Product Management, Simon Morris, said in response to the leak, “An internal development build of uTorrent for Mac has been leaked publicly. It [is] an “alpha” quality build. We did not intentionally release this build and would strongly recommend folks not to use it as it isn’t yet complete or stable enough to be released to the public.”

Early user reports say the application is largely functional, though search appears to be broken. The good news for P2P lovers is that BitTorrent seems serious about releasing uTorrent for Mac in the near future.

    Oh the irony…

    I think the real news story here is that anyone still cares about uTorrent for Mac. If it had been released it some reasonable time after it had been announced, when none of the Mac clients had cool features like selective file downloading, they would have owned the market. As it is, Transmission already does everything I want and more, I don’t know if I’d even bother to check uTorrent out.

    Or, if you don’t want to wait for the official Mac version, you can still get uTorrent’s super fast download speeds and reliability by using VMware Fusion… check out my guide on corewerkz for the streamlined setup process: http://www.corewerkz.com/2008/10/10/fusion-xp-utorrent-fast-reliable-mac-torrent-downloads/.
