PicoTorrent; a BitTorrent client without the bloat.

Remember the good old days when BitTorrent clients were just exactly that; BitTorrent clients? Nowadays BitTorrent clients are packed with loads of unnecessary features. Take uTorrent for example; it started as a lightweight BitTorrent client, but nowadays is bloated with features such as streaming but also advertisements. Roughly the same happened to qBittorrent, so I switched to Baretorrent. Sadly development of Baretorrent stopped in 2013 and is getting outdated in terms of encryption protocols, hence I started looking for an alternative and behold; PicoTorrent, the true lightweight BitTorrent Client. Basically it’s an updated version of Baretorrent; It has no unnecessary features, no advertisements, IPv6 support and it’s open-source!
