UPDATE: December 2012
BitComet 1.34 is the latest version of the client. It comes with support for nearly any version of Windows, including Windows 8. This new version includes a bundle of features that enable the user to manage and organize downloads, preview files while downloading, multi-mirror downloading, and much more.
Right from the start we have to say BitComet is a top p2p client for downloading torrents, and offers an embedded browser to make finding torrents easier.
In terms of features BitComet is quite generous: UPNP auto-configuration with your router, custom categories to organize your files, simultaneous downloads, DHT networks (trackerless), a download queue, selected downloads in the Torrent package, fast-resume, disk caching, speed limits, auto port mapping, proxies, and IP filtering. The program packs in lots of features though you can’t improve its functionality through plug-ins. BitComet presents you with a default list of torrent index sites, (however, sometimes there are script errors) which you can change by removing sites you don’t want or adding sites that are missing.
The program also allows you to set a limit on your upload speed, so it won’t choke your connection and prevent other web use while running.
For some of you BitComet might look a bit dense at first, coming with a rather non-simplistic design as compared with some of its competitors. This is due to the amount of info it offers but it shouldn’t take you much to easily find your way with it.
Probably the coolest feature of the latest version of BitComet is the possibility to download any video from any video site such as YouTube, Google Video, Dailymotion, Metacafe, etc.
Strong Points: highly versatile, powerful, able to download any video/mp3/flash files from ANY website.
Weak Points: a bit clustered, could use a better detection of the clients that users are working with.
