I mean if it's working for you, why change? Don't fix it if it aint broke. I use uTorrent, but I don't use torrents very often. Never had any issues, minus the advertisements in the bottom left.

Didn't uTorrent turn into some ad free for all with a pay wall? I something something happening to it. SOmething with viruses even.

I use qBittoorent. Very easy to use and fairly easy to navigate.

qbittorrent and (on Linux) ktorrent are both my preferred programs. They're straight-forward, open source, and offer a nice amount of features.

They put in random intrusive minute-long ads and presumably a bitcoin miner.

You can disable ads within utorrent. Google can help with that, takes about 2 minutes. I just make a habit of shutting it down when not using it.

You can also use a better product without the hassle, like qBitTorrent.

Tixati is a good client, too:

It also comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

This - it's basically uTorrent without the ads, crapware, and general cruftiness. And it's cross-platform!
