BitTyrant is a new, protocol compatible BitTorrent client that is optimized
for fast download performance. BitTyrant is:
* Fast: During evaluation testing on more than 100 real BitTorrent swarms,
BitTyrant provided an average 70% download performance increase when
compared to the existing Azureus 2.5 implementation, with some downloads
finishing more than three times as quickly.
* Fair: BitTorrent was designed with incentives in mind: if a user is
downloading at 30 KBps, they should upload at 30 KBps. However, due to the
unique workload properties of many real-world swarms, this is not always
enforced. BitTyrant is designed to make efficient use of your scarce upload
bandwidth, rewarding those users whose upload allocations are fair and only
allocating excess capacity to other users.
* Familiar: BitTyrant is based on modifications to Azureus 2.5, currently the
most popular BitTorrent client. All of our changes are under the hood.
You'll find the GUI identical to Azureus, with optional additions to display
statistics relevant to BitTyrant's operation.
