    Friend is looking for one that's not command line.
    Likes one to provide lots of information/stats and graphs... also one that's easy to understand.

    I've used the plug-in on edonkey, but that's a plug-in. :p Don't think it works with TorrentSpy either.

    Any suggestions?

    If I'm not breaking forum rules, check out azareus. sourceforge. 'nuff said.

    If he's behind a UPnP-enabled router, I'd suggest BitComet (what I use) or Azureus. Using either of them will save you the trouble of setting up port forwarding on the router for faster speeds.

    G3 Torrent is also very nice interface-wise, but it's not UPnP-aware. :)

    http://www.bittornado.com/ always has been and my fav, and have never had a reason to switch.

    Simple to install, usues less resources than the bigger clients, and has a lot of options hidden within it.

    I use ABC, didn't like Azureus when I tried it, but lots of folks swear by it.
     
  12. Another vote for Bittornado.

    i tryed them all, the best one that i found was bitcomet, as far as i know its the only one that supports using proxies, but also, azureus doesnt do what u tell it to do, when i right click and tell it to delete the torrent and remove it from the window, it doesnt do anything, pretty gay if u ask me
