Torrents are the second popular term in the world. The last decade was all about the torrents, anything you need can be found on the torrent sites. Several websites started to appear on the world wide web, and they became famous in no time. There are also few who had to shut-down due to the copyright notices they were receiving.

However, life is a journey, and some were able to continue to make it this far as the number one torrent portal.  uTorrent and FrostWire, they are one of those torrent category services which is online today and dominating other newbies in the town.

Having been the most popular option for awhile, uTorrent is more widely supported different software.  For example, those concerned by legal threats related to copyright issues can use uTorrent with a VPN from providers like ExpressVPN.

uTorrent is the most popular torrent program in the world right now. The FrostWire is the most significant competition to the uTorrent because they are going up against uToreent toe-to-toe. Every company claims that they are best, which is happening to the Frostwire and uTorrent right now.

FrostWire vs. uTorrent Which is Better and Why?

If you go for the popular one, you may miss out a feature that can save your time and there are also features which make your downloads go faster, thus saving your time one more time. It’s better we compare both programs with advantages and disadvantages so that you can be the judge.

#1 FrostWire

Its only fair, when we give the FrostWire the spot they deserve. So, we start with the FrostWire.


  1. The program is lightweight, thus saving you space, loading speed will fast and saves battery charge on your Windows laptop.
  2. The interface is extremely user-friendly, which means a newbie, who has just installed it can master it within a day or so.
  3. The primary advantage, which we consider is the monetization. To sustain the business, every program or company has to monetize their product. The FrostWire does not sell advertisements space, which makes it perfect someone like me.
  4. You can open the torrent files locally or magnet line or URL.
  5. You can share the files and folders quickly.
  6. You can download multiple files at once.
  7. The number of settings allows you to customize it.


  1. The annoying thing about the program is that they add unnecessary programs during the setup. That is how they monetize the FrostWire. The company gets paid for every installation they make on your Windows PC. This is kind of cheesy business models, which annoys me the most. But you can open the control panel and uninstall them at once.

#2 uTorrent

Popular torrent program in the world, let’s see what they have in their arsenal to offer the users.


  1. The uTorrent is the lightweight program, just like FrostWire. The program won’t have any additional plugins or additional download, and it is a standalone installer.
  2. When the torrent is downloading, the files are usually large, so you can keep the download overnight and set it as “Shut down, Hibernate, and Reboot” after the download is completed.
  3. It supports multiple platforms.
  4. You can even schedule the downloads from days to weeks.
  5. You can pause the torrent, and you can resume it even after a week, the file will be intact but make sure the source is active.
  6. It runs on start-up, but you can change the settings to make it stop it from the settings.
  7. How about you have a torrent in the RSS? You can download them directly from the RSS, which is a useful option for many users.


  1. We always say that monetization of the product is an aspect, which we have to check because it becomes an annoying part after from day one. The uTorrent is available for free but not entirely. The company sells advertisements on the platform, which can grow into an annoying thing.
  2. You can only download the torrents, but you cannot search for the program. The developers should have added the feature.
  3. We have said this before, the business model in the uTorrent is to make money via display advertisements and install additional program installations, which can become a problem for many people.

Whenever you download any of the programs, you should open the “Control panel” and check for unrecognizable programs.


We have listed both advantages and disadvantages, which will give you a clear picture of the programs. Lets us know which one you have selected in the comment section.
