Azureus (Vuze) - The best BitTorrent Client

I've been using a bunch of BitTorrent clients (BitFlu, BitThief, BitTorrent) with my mac. To tell the truth I was not satisfied with any of them.I'm a control freak, so I was looking for something better. One day while googling i noticed a client called Azureus (Now it's called Vuze) in some blogs and reviews.So I thought I Could give it a shot.Now I'm a die-hard fan of Azureus.

Azureus is a favorite with both the advanced users and newbies, Azureus offers a legion of features including Plug-in system and huge range of tweakable settings.It's interface is not as glossy as the BitTorrent's or some other clients but It is fair and rich with features.Below the main toolbar is a pair of windows. The top one tracks the files you're downloading, the bottom one shows files you're seeding. Right-clicking on any file and selecting Show Details will open up a host of graphical views.
