uTorrent, the world's most popular Torrent client, came under intense criticism after announcing that it would introduce "sponsored" automatic downloads in future releases. The ads will now be opt-out, but uTorrent will continue to experiment with new revenue models to earn money from its 125 million active users, accordingly to a company statement. uTorrent is estimated to have a 75 percent market share across platforms.
