Halite Review

Tina de Pierre
A capable and powerful Bit Torrent client
A review of Halite by Tina de Pierre

Halite is a Bit Torrent client which includes many useful options for creating and seeding torrent files.

The main interface of the program is pretty basic, yet easy-to-understand. Like uTorrent, it lists current torrents, their statuses (finished, seeding, downloading, stopped), progress in percentage and download and upload speeds.

Also similar to other torrent clients, Halite includes other details in the bottom panel about the selected torrent and its respective peer and file data. Just like virtually every other torrent client, this one will also sit in the system tray when not in use.

Creating new torrents with Halite is completed by including a several details including the generated name, track URLs, web seed URLs and the output destination. Halite can also create private torrents.

In terms of other features, Halite can also control transfer rates, seeding, maximum connections, protocol encryption, IP filters and more.
