BitTorrent, Inc to acquire Swedish uTorrent AB. “Together, we are pleased to announce that BitTorrent, Inc. and µTorrent AB have decided to join forces. BitTorrent has acquired µTorrent as it recognized the merits of µTorrent’s exceptionally well-written codebase and robust user community. Bringing together µTorrent’s efficient implementation and compelling UI with BitTorrent’s expertise in networking protocols will significantly benefit the community with what we envision will be the best BitTorrent client.”
The number 1 and number 3 torrent clients join forces. Maybe this is one of the reasons BitTorrent, Inc raised $20 million?
