Easy & Powerful
Transmission is designed for easy, powerful use. We've set the defaults to just work and it only takes a few clicks to configure advanced features like watch directories, bad peer blocklists, and the web interface. When Ubuntu chose Transmission as its default BitTorrent client, one of the most-cited reasons was its easy learning curve.
Native for Your System
Unlike many cross-platform applications, Transmission integrates seamlessly with your operating system.
Transmission on macOS is a truly native and
polished experience. This isn't some cross-platform app that treats macOS as an afterthought. With
a sleek and simple interface, Transmission meets or exceeds Apple UI standards while using native
v4.0 is Apple Silicon Native!
The Qt-based Windows UI has been modernized and is fully Windows 11 ready.
The GTK interface has been carefully written to follow the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines and features.
Lightweight & Lightning Fast
Transmission has one of the lowest memory & resource footprints of any major BitTorrent client. Transmission's light overhead is one reason why it is so well suited for home NAS and media servers. Having been used by Western Digital, Zyxel and Belkin, Transmission gives truly impressive performance on almost any compatible hardware.
Open Source &
Transmission is an open source, volunteer-based project. Unlike some BitTorrent clients, Transmission doesn't play games with its users to make money.
We don't bundle toolbars, pop-up ads, flash ads, twitter tools, or anything else. It doesn't hold some features back for a payware version. We don't track our users. Our website and forums have no third-party ads or analytics.
Since the latter part of 2021 a lot of work has been happening behind the scenes on development that has included a complete rebase of the code and new features being included from community contributors and the dedicated lead developers of the project.
There has been progress across all platforms on an almost daily basis. With nightly releases we have been working on Apple Silicon since last year, while v3.0 functions perfectly under Rosetta 2.
Join the progress as Transmission enters a beta phase to reach v4.0!
