uTorrent is the most popular Bittorrent client in the world and it is expected to feature some big changes soon. With around 150 million active users a month, uTorrent remains the leading torrent client, by far. As TorrentFreak reports that the app will eventually run in your web browser, based on comments from BitTorrent creator Bram Cohen in an interview with the Steal This Show podcast.

The move will allow uTorrent the offer better streaming support, something the current client has always had problems 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 NEW client on users.

“We’re very, very sensitive. We know people have been using uTorrent for a very long time and love it. 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.”

“We’re going to roll it out and get feedback and make sure that people are happy with it before we roll it out to everybody,” Cohen concludes.
