The move will allow uTorrent the offer better streaming support -- something the current client has always struggled with -- and it'll also give its developers access to more modern technology to add even more features. And, surprisingly enough, you'll likely see elements from the company's defunct Maelstrom browser in the new client too.
uTorrent will take its time before forcing the client on users, though. "We know people have been using uTorrent for a very long time and love it," Cohen said. "So we're very, very sensitive to that and gonna be sure to make sure that people feel that it's an upgrade that's happening. Not that we've just destroyed the experience."
