I’ve always used μTorrent® as my desktop torrent client. I would search for torrent files online, then download the required files using the μTorrent® desktop client. Yes, it was pathetic as there are dozens of torrent websites out there but all of them are full of pitiful ads. On the other hand, μTorrent® has ads built-in, but I was able to remove its ads using a method I found on Lifehack! Despite all this, the experience wasn’t fulfilling. Every time I wanted to download something I had to go back to those poor quality websites. Not anymore. qBittorrent is the answer. Not only does it have a really good UI, but also has a built-in search option.
