"Light, proper use of UL slots and better throttling evasion."

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I hop from 1 Bittorrent client to another for the past 3 years and had stuck to Deluge or Vuze. Reason? Because I happen to live and use a monopolistic ISP which deploys some very, very stringent "bandwidth management" tactics. So far the 2 above-mentioned clients were good enough to get pass that but it seems like not for long. Halite surpasses both Deluge and Vuze at that and it's almost if not lighter than µTorrent. Granted that the UI looks a bit spartan but it gets the job done. I highly recommend it!
