BitComet is a manager for web, FTP and BitTorrent downloads supporting simultaneous connections, file queue, selected torrent package contents, fast-resume, chatting, disk cache, speed limits, port mapping, proxy, IP filter etc.

The download includes both 32 and 64-bit versions.

Confirmed just now: shows links for both packages but all you get is an error for v1.50. Alternative download locations pointed to by the homepage don't work either.

The download links for BitComet version 1.50 - "404 Not Found" (both for the archive and the installer).

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

Carbonize comment above seems to imply that eMule functionality is built-in BitComet, when in fact it resides in a separated plugin... IMHO, BitComet provides for a comprehensive and rather good downloading solution (encompassing regular, media and torrent downloads).
