Running in Ubuntu 9.04
Transmission comes with an intuitive interface which doesn't stay in the way of the user. It's been stripped of all the bloated other clients may have, but still it features:
- various useful information about the currently downloading torrent (global activity, peers, trackers, files)
- speed limiting options for downloading and uploading
- creation of your own torrents
- web interface
- pause/resume downloading
Transmission will also allow to sort torrents by share ratio, progress, name, downloaded time etc. and it provides a minimal mode (accessible through Ctrl+M), which will display less information about torrents.
Showing torrent info
Although it has no integrated searching capabilities, it has an option to automatically add torrents from a specified directory, so the downloads can be started automatically when saving a torrent file with your browser to that specified folder.
Another nice feature are desktop notifications, and also the possibility to connect to trackers via a proxy.
Overall, Transmission is a really good recommendation if you don't need a bigger, more bloated client. It integrates very well with GNOME and is far more lighter than Deluge or Vuze. It will do its job very well without giving you any hassle.
