Vuze (formerly Azureus) is a java BitTorrent client offering multiple torrent downloads, queuing/priority systems, start/stop seeding options and instant access to numerous pieces of information about your torrents.

Vuze is now one of the most popular BitTorrent clients.
Vuze allows users to download multiple files in a single graphical user interface. The program also features detailed statistics and a large number of user-configurable settings.
