uTorrent Makes Advertisement Optional Again

Postby Ceil » 01 Jul 2014, 12:56

Fast forward a couple of weeks and the uTorrent team now appears to have reconsidered its position. The latest stable release, which came out just before the weekend, reinstated the advanced setting.

“Added back: Feature gui_plus_upsell in advanced settings,” the changelog reads.

Too late for me, I switched to qBittorrent on my Windows machine and Deluge on my Linux box.
I even bought uTorrent Plus thinking there would be a way just to remove ads, but it comes with so much shit, it's not worth paying for. Who the fuck wants antivirus with their Bittorrent client?

Yeah they are pushing the ability to watch it while it downloads. Cool I guess but never used it myself.

I thought you could do that with regular uTorrent. I'm sure have I done it.
You can do it with qBittorrent to by selecting sequential downloading.

I think its a newer feature in utorrent. New as in since it was sold and started sucking.

I still use it though. As long as it gets my stuff I din't really care.
