- BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer (P2P) client designed to efficiently manage the downloading of large, high-quality, digital files such as video, music, and games.
- The client is used to search the Internet for legal torrent files, which can then be quickly downloaded to a user´s machine.
- As files become more popular, the speed in which they can be downloaded increases through the use of a central tracker and peers.
- This technology saves time over traditional methods, while maintaining the integrity of the file.
