Over the past couple of years, the BitTorrent market has been dominated by the likes of uTorrent, Azureus and BitComet, with the three of them taking up as much as 90% marketshare. With such sort of dominance these apps we’ve not seen many alternative solutions in the past few years.
Common sense says that it might be next to impossible for a new app in this field to play catch up with the major three, but the newcomer on field Halite (named after a mineral) might just stand a chance.
Halite has been in development since 2006, and over the years it has become a fast, full fledged lightweight BitTorrent client. One of the greatest strengths of Halite is that it uses minimal system resources. If you thought uTorrent was already lightweight, then correct yourself because Halite consistently uses up half the resources that uTorrent uses on my PC.
Halite supports all the basic features the average downloader would need including encryption, selective downloading, a torrent creator and more. At the moment there is no support for disk caching, seeding preferences and torrent queuing, but these and others are on the to do list, which means they will be implemented in the future.
Hi Guys, My hands are full this week with exams in college and some other activities. Which means I will not be able to post regularly this week. Normal posting should resume by the next monday.
Hi Guys, I am moving this blog from Lunarpages to a VPS on Liquidweb. I am currently uploading the files and database onto the new server. So expect things to be quite rough for the next couple of days.
Regular posting will resume once the move is complete. Wish me luck, I’ll get back very soon.
