Software Pick: Tixati

Tixati


Torrenting with Efficiency and Precision 



Tixati is a peer-to-peer file sharing program that uses the popular BitTorrent protocol. This protocol allows many peers to form a cooperative swarm and download very large files with great efficiency.


A great representation of how Tixati is different and more
efficient than any other torrenting software.



" Unlike many other torrent clients, we take pride in saying NO to spyware and adware. Tixati installs and uninstalls cleanly and doesn't add anything extra to your system. Our software is fully self-contained and doesn't have annoying dependencies on Java or .Net frameworks. "

Features:

  • Detailed views of all aspects of the swarm, including peers, pieces, files, and trackers
  • Support for magnet links, so no need to download .torrent files if a simple magnet-link is available
  • Super-efficient peer choking/unchoking algorithms ensure the fastest downloads
  • Peer connection encryption for added security
  • Full DHT (Distributed Hash Table) implementation for trackerless torrents, including detailed message traffic graphs and customizable event logging
  • Advanced bandwidth charting of overall traffic and per-transfer traffic, with separate classification of protocol and file bytes, and with separate classification of outbound traffic for trading and seeding
  • Highly flexible bandwidth throttling, including trading/seeding proportion adjustment and adjustable priority for individual transfers and peers
  • Bitfield graphs that show the completeness of all downloaded files, what pieces other peers have available, and the health of the overall swarm
  • Customizable event logging for each download, and individual event logs for all peers within the swarm
  • Expert local file management functions which allow you to move files to a different partition even while downloading is still in progress
  • 100% compatible with the BitTorrent protocol
  • Windows and Linux-GTK native versions available
