BitTorrent recently released uTorrent 3.0 alpha which merges their Falcon and Griffin projects to provide some very cool features under one roof. These features include an improved web client, video streaming and an app “store”.
uTorrent Web (from Project Falcon 2.1) is quite an improvement from the old web client you’ll find in v2.0 and prior. The new web client has really blurred the lines between what’s web and what’s not. Unlike the prior client uTorrent Web supports RSS feeds. Another big change is that it is accessed via https://web.utorrent.com meaning you can manage your client from anywhere on the Internet using a web browser on a PC or an iPhone.
Head to the uTorrent forum to read the changelog and download uTorrent 3.0 alpha to take it for a spin. As with any alpha build, please expect bugs that need to be worked out. Nonetheless this build provides a feature set that is leaps and bounds past uTorrent 2.0.
