Although it's not the only one, the BitTorrent network is the most popular one when it comes to exchanging files under the P2P protocol. The official client of the same name grants us access and manages our downloads, although a lighter version has been developed keeping in mind a lower resource consumption. We're obviously talking about uTorrent which you can also use in its portable version to take it with you wherever you go and use it on computers where you can't or don't want to install programs.
The portable version that you can take with you wherever you go
In uTorrent Portable you won't find too many differences regarding the desktop version. In other words, you can carry out the same actions by accessing the peer-to-peer file exchange network. These are its main functions:
- Control the downloads by pausing, resuming or canceling them at any moment.
- Allocate the bandwidth of your choice to each torrent.
- Check usage stats.
- Modify connection settings to optimize the downloads and achieve higher download speeds.
- Share files with other users.
All in all, we're talking about the classic program that you can now carry around on a USB stick together with other essential software.
