BitTorrent is a popular client for working with p2p networks, with the help of which a user can quickly download large files from the Internet, be it movies, music, games, applications, books, CDs and DVD disc images and much more
BitTorrent - A peer-to-peer network client program aimed at the ability to download large files from the BitTorrent file-sharing network. Unlike other similar networks (Kazaa, eDonkey, etc.), where the same file can be owned by several people who own this file, BitTorrent assumes that the file has a single owner, who is interested in distributing it .
A distinctive feature of this network is a very high speed of downloading a file, which is achieved by the original way of issuing a file from several computers at once, even if the entire file is not on them yet. Moreover, very large files are distributed through this network: movies, games, CD and DVD disk images, etc.
In addition to the advantages of this program, there are also disadvantages, the most important of which is that no file search system is provided - the download starts after clicking on the so-called torrent-file (specialized link), which contains all the information about the downloaded file. Such links can be found on special sites-directories of the BitTorrent network.
