We all know what uTorrent is. It’s the most popular torrent client in the world. But did you know that most of the features we are using right now came from an update five years ago? It’s surprising that growth has stalled even though we don’t know yet what added features we need right now. As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
But change is about to come.
Founder Brahm Cohen is now envisioning that the future of uTorrent is to become a browser-based application. The only difference is it won’t be its own browser, bit the one you’re currently using. uTorrent’s shift to browser allows the company to continue its in-client advertising focus, all while making torrents more accessible. Especially to those who aren’t really tech savvy that might have previously steered out of the application because of its infamous and non-existent user-friendliness.
There’s no target date for this yet, but with the founder setting its eyes on something rational, we doubt that it won’t take long.
