µTorrent (or uTorrent) is a lightweight BitTorrent client that supports multiple simultaneous downloads, file level priorities, configurable bandwidth scheduler and speed limiters, even the ability to only run while user activity is detected. Also includes boss key, built-in search function, and RSS capability for subscribed downloads.

Note that this software was changed to adware after being added to the PortableFreeware database.

@DarkShadow: v3.4.5 build 41712 seems to be the latest stable version.

As I wrote on 2015-09-26, the original software isn't portable. I don't know why it hasn't yet been blacklisted from this website... Anyway, I tried the PortableApps version, but initially it didn't work: I had to rename first uTorrent_Downloaded.exe to uTorrent.exe in the [\uTorrentPortable\App\uTorrent] folder.

qBittorrent is a file sharing client modeled as an open alternative to µTorrent. It includes a torrent search engine, support for all extensions (DHT, Peer Exchange, crypto, Magnet/BitComet, etc.), web interface, RSS, scheduler, IP Filtering (eMule and PeerGuardian compatible), IPv6 compliance, and more. Uniquely, it includes a program lock to password-protect the interface.

The program includes torrent creation and even tracker capabilities (for serving content).

qBittorrent Portable is a portable version of the standard client. Alternatively, X-qBittorrent is also available. Clients are also available for other platforms (Mac, Linux, FreeBSD, OS/2) and in ~25 world languages.

@stisev: I really don't think feature bounties like what the qBitTorrent dev requested are harmful. As open source / freeware developers rarely see donations, I'd rather see requests like these than adware/bundleware.

Such garbage software. The author is about the biggest asshole I have ever met in the development world. Seriously, if you think this is an opinion go read the issues forum. as ransom for portable mode, he's demanding people give him money. You really can't make this shit up.

I gave qbittorrent an honest try. I can't get magnet links to associate with the portable version anymore. I even tried running it in Sandboxie and manually installing a reg entry.

This app should be reported and removed from PF as it constantly spreads its files all over my computer after magnet links are associated.
IT. IS. NOT. PORTABLE. and based on what the way the dev is screaming at its users, it's becoming donation-ware.

I encourage you all to petition mods to remove this app.

By the way I have found a native portable build:
http://bearware.dk/teamtalk/v4.6.1/
But I am not sure whether it is really portable.

joby_toss on 2014-12-09 07:10

Yes, it's portable, but it's only the classic 32-bit version. Nice find and let's hope they'll let the link up once they see it getting many hits.

RetroShare v0.6.2

billon on 17 Mar 2017
  • 49MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by lautrepay

Retroshare is a feature-rich communications platform for small groups of users with a focus on privacy. The program includes an exclusive and secure toolset for instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, direct messages (e-mail), file server, VoIP, channels for distributing content, and link exchange. It functions as an open, distributed alternative to many commercial groupware programs.

Additional features include RSS feed reader, status messages (away/busy), different modes for low traffic, transfer and disk space limits, plugins, skins, and much more. Cross-platform (Mac, Linux, BSD).

Great for small businesses, groups, and a safer alternative to most file sharing methods. Networks can be small or large, but communications between users are limited by default to friends and friends-of-friends, with more specific controls available.

Forgot to mention the portable version is now chosen from the installer

webfork on 2017-03-17 23:00

@ozziguy: Looks like they're still offering the portable 7zip version, and it's 20% smaller. I'll go ahead and list both. Thanks for the note.

billon on 2017-03-17 23:11

why, why the hell you need installer of any kind, especially here on TPFC, if there exist portable package???
