qBittorrent is free, powerful bittorrent client, and it is cross-platform available for all major platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, OS/2, FreeBSD). It is lightweight but feature-full BitTorrent client and very easy to use. It is written in C++ programming language and uses libtorrent as well, and a Qt4 Graphical User Interface. It has more and more features such as an integrated search engine, UPnP, encryption, PeX, a torrent creation tool, more. The program uses libtorrent-rasterbar library for the torrent back-end (network communication) functionality. qBittorrent aims to meet the needs of most users while using as little CPU and memory as possible. qBittorrent is an attempt to provide a μTorrent (or "uTorrent") equivalent that is open-source and multi-platform and in adding a streaming-like function to let users download and play video files. qBittorrent currently offers functionality comparable to other BitTorrent clients, such as Vuze but without requiring the Java Virtual Machine. For its BitTorrent and μTP implementation, qBittorrent uses the Rasterbar libtorrent library, which is itself written in C++.
