Application size & resource utilisation
The setup file of BitComet is around 15.5 MB. While installation, you will be prompted to install options for browser integration with IE, Chrome and Firefox. However, there is other third-party software which you may like to skip during the installation process.
BitComet does not take a lot of space on your computer, and it does not have memory bloat issues. Also, your PC is not overloaded while this program runs in the background. Overall, I would rate it as a lightweight application.
I did not find BitComet’s interface as easy as some of the similar torrent clients available in the market. It will take some digging around the various available options to understand. Although, you can enable or disable toolbars per your need. The interface is free from advertisements.
As soon as you copy the torrent link, BitComet automatically detects it and opens a popup for adding the copied link.
It supports BitTorrent extension and protocols such as magnet links, private torrent links, PEX (Peer exchange), UPnP, etc. It has features such as bandwidth scheduling, Web seeding, ability prioritise download of specific individual files in a torrent file, share your torrent file on a P2P network with other users, etc.
Its built-in search function will open internet explorer separate window, without disturbing the BitComet user interface. You can also configure your PC mode, such as auto shutdown, sleep, hibernate, etc. after a torrent is downloaded. It has remote download feature, which is nothing but initiating download or upload from a remote location with the help of web access.
BitComet is available in 52 languages. There is an option to control the bandwidth. However, you cannot individually limit the bandwidth of the different torrent files.
It has application for Microsoft Windows system. There is no support for Mac OS and Linux systems. Also, there is no mobile application as compared to other worthy competitors such as uTorrent, BitTorrent, etc.
