BiglyBT v2.8

A feature filled, open source, ad-free, bittorrent client for Windows, MacOS and Linux.

From the authors:
Since 2003, BiglyBT's team has worked hard to bring you the best open source torrent product in the market. Unlike our competitors, our client is ad-free and our installer contains no third party offers.
We provide migration tools for several popular bittorent clients. Switching to BiglyBT from projects using the same source is simple and requires no interactions beyond the initial migration approval. Your settings, downloads, and plugins will all be there and ready to use.

In addition to the standard Bittorrent Client Features, BiglyBT also offers:

Downloading Features
Swarm Merging to complete torrents that do not have all the available bits, and to speed up downloading
Rate limiting globally, by download, by tag, by peer-set (e.g. peers from a given country), by network (public/I2P) and even by peer. Overall capacity limits are also supported to work with ISP limits. Limits can also be scheduled by time of day etc.
WebTorrent support - BiglyBT can download and seed to WebTorrent peers. There is also a built-in WebTorrent tracker.

Control Features
Robust settings. If you want to control it, there’s probably a setting for it!
Remote controlling via Android app (any android app that supports the Transmission RPC will do, but we recommend ).
