µTorrent Mac Beta Finally Released

I just received this e-mail from the μTorrent Mac Team:

Psst…

You asked us to tell you about µTorrent Mac developments.

The beta is out. It’s Leopard and Intel only right now, but we’re working
to expand support soon.

This is great news. µTorrent is an excellent torrent client on Windows, and I’m excited to give it a try on Mac OS X. Yes, it’s still a beta, but I look forward to seeing how it compares to my reigning favorite client – Transmission.

0.9.0 is the current version.

Here’s the main screen:

So far, I’d say it looks and acts a lot like the Windows version, just a lot more slick, glassy, and Mac-like.

Your thoughts? Will you be switching your Mac torrent client?
