Tixati is a free and easy to use BitTorrent client featuring detailed views of all seed, peer, and file transfer properties. Also included are powerful bandwidth charting and throttling capabilities, and a full DHT implementation.

Tixati is one of the most advanced and flexible BitTorrent clients available. And unlike many other clients, Tixati contains NO SPYWARE, NO ADS, and NO GIMMICKS.

Tixati portable version is meant to run on a USB flash drive or other portable media. It stores all its configuration files in the same folder as the executable binary files, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program executable folder.

It is important you do not delete the "tixati_portable_mode.txt" file within the executables folder. This file is what triggers Tixati to run in portable mode. (The executable binaries are actually the same as the standard edition binaries.)

When running the portable edition from a USB flash drive, especially one that is formatted in FAT16/FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash-based media consumes a greater amount of time and resources compared to a conventional hard-drive.

Tixati has the following features:
  • detailed views of all aspects of the swarm, including peers, pieces, files, and trackers
  • support for magnet links, so no need to download .torrent files if a simple magnet-link is available
  • super-efficient peer choking/unchoking algorithms ensure the fastest downloads
  • peer connection encryption for added security
  • full DHT (Distributed Hash Table) implementation for trackerless torrents, including detailed message traffic graphs and customizable event logging
  • advanced bandwidth charting of overall traffic and per-transfer traffic, with separate classification of protocol and file bytes, and with separate classification of outbound traffic for trading and seeding
  • highly flexible bandwidth throttling, including trading/seeding proportion adjustment and adjustable priority for individual transfers and peers
  • bitfield graphs that show the completeness of all downloaded files, what pieces other peers have available, and the health of the overall swarm
  • customizable event logging for each download, and individual event logs for all peers within the swarm
  • expert local file management functions which allow you to move files to a different partition even while downloading is still in progress
  • 100% compatible with the BitTorrent protocol
  • Windows and Linux-GTK native versions available

Tixati v3.12 changelog:
  • support tixati_local_instance_check.txt in app folder, which allows multiple stand-alone instances to run from separate app folders
  • support tixati_standalone_mode.txt in app folder, which is the same as portable mode except without restricting system folder locations to the same device
  • fixed potential crash when loading corrupt piece data storage file from previous session
  • fixed problems with status area at top of floating channel windows
  • fixed edit box select-on-focus problems in chat room view
  • non-custom colored single and multi-line text views in dialogs now have correct system colors even on dark OS themes
  • file and folder selection controls on Windows builds now have proper font-scaled minimum size request
  • fixed rare crash in menu sizing routines on Windows builds
  • paned split views now accurately save/restore divider position when hosting tabbed view with different minimum heights on each tab
  • proper font-scaled minimum sizing for rich-text view and plain-text views on Windows and Linux builds
  • fixed GTK rich-text view selection mouse capture and text highlighting problems
  • single and multi-line edit boxes now properly enforce maximum bytes input with multi-byte UTF8 sequences, preventing text-clipping later
  • tree and list view minimum size request in Windows is now font-proportional
  • in GTK builds, all secondary floating windows and dialogs are now destroyed instantly when program is closed, before .dat files save
  • fixed other minor problems with program closedown in GTK main loop exit procedure which were causing crashes
  • Auto-Shutdown now correctly executes a system shutdown on both Linux and Windows builds
  • some refinements to tree and list view background painting, now showing proper alternating-row background in all places
  • fixed minor problems when dropping many files onto the main transfers view or categories panel at once
  • paned view divider position is now saved separately for main window chat view and floating channel window chat view
  • fixed rare crash when sorting transfers view by time left or by BPS In/Out
  • IPv6 addresses with a trailing double-colon :: are now correctly parsed in all areas of the program, no more unnecessary host resolve
  • fixed problems when manually adding peers from transfer options tab in peers section
  • when merging duplicate transfers, web-seed and peer addresses are now properly forwarded from the duplicate transfer to the original
  • adding a transfer by raw torrent hash-ID now works correctly from Add Transfer dialog, WebUI, and ctrl-V in transfers view
  • fixed crash saving core2.dat config file when there are transfers in a rare error state and missing key components
  • magnet-link copy templates now correctly handle [hash2] tag on transfers that only have a v1 hash-ID
  • new wildcard: match prefix for Individual Tracker Options in Settings > Transfers > Trackers
  • transfer preload window default enter-key action now works correctly
  • fixed problem with DHT Peer DB view shortcut ctrl-shift ZQZ which creates transfer from selected hash entry
  • fixed problems with channel Secure Local Resource Discovery, which allow peers to find each other on the local LAN
  • minor refinements to the channel list display, some column alignments changed
  • numerous other minor GUI tweaks and fixes throughout the program

Is it good enough to compare with qbittorrent? because so far I haven't found a better one than qBittorrent
Tixati never properly worked for me. Takes a long time before any download starts and it apparently also has data leakage (or something like that) issues, which basically means it downloads more data than the file it's downloading. It's banned in many private trackers. Didn't try this latest version, though. So don't know if these issues have been fixed.
Never had any issue with qBittorrent.

If you don't have any problem with qBittorrent why are you looking for a better torrent client then qBittorrent? it's one of the best torrent client in the world since uTorrent is dead.
