Deluge : Small and Fast Open-Source BitTorrent Client

So many of the Linux variants are available for download in form of torrent or magnet links. For downloading from torrents we depend on the P2P BitTorrent network which fetches the data from other people’s computers directly who already have that file. For this, we need BitTorrent client software that can connect you to the P2P network and start fetching the file in small portions until the whole file is downloaded. There are many BitTorrent clients available and Deluge is one of them.
