It was originally written in C++ by Christophe Dumez (from France) in 2006 when he was a student. Now it’s maintained by worldwide volunteers on their spare time. qBittorrent is a free, open-source and cross-platform BitTorrent client (torrent file downloader) with nice UI based on Qt and built-in search engines.

As a fast and reliable alternative of the most popular two BT clients: uTorrent & BitTorrent, qBittorrent came with similar features but beautifier, easier and more intuitive UI. And compared with other popular BT clients, we think it’s lighter than Vuze, more beautiful than Deluge, and comes with more functions than Transmission. As to uTorrent & BitTorrent, at least, qBittorrent is open source and based on the libtorrent (BitTorrent development library of C++), which has 2 times of improvement on performance to them.
