Transmission - BitTorrent Client for OS X

Tried BitTorrent, Tomato Torrent and Transmission. I chose Transmission because it was lighter than BitTorrent and supported drag-n-drops of web page links which Tomato didn't do.

Azureus was out of the picture because I didn't feel like installing a resource hog Java app. Didn't try BitRocket.

(I got the BT client because I've been bumping into a few open source apps that offer bittorrent downloading - which I'd rather use because that way I'm not using as much bandwidth from the kind folks who offer their product for free.)
