... and thus I need a backup choice to BitTorrent.
Does anyone have any suggestion?

I use BitComet.
Grab the source code quickly and start developing your own eMule :D
You can find the source code here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/emule/eMule0.47b-Sources.zip

Hmm... wait.

It seems I was an unsuspecting victim of site cloning. www.emule.org gets you to a payed emule client that has nothing to do with the real one. http://www.emule-project.net is the real site.

I had a few problems with emule recently and had it uninstalled. Now when trying to grab it again I went to the wrong site.

So... for clarification in case someone takes this the wrong way, emule is not asking for money.

I use uTorrent. Its less than 1mb disk usage.

I've always used ABC since it's the first one I tried. After seeing this eMule, ABC looks a bit inferior :(

hmm... emule is not for bittorrent, fellas. It's for edonkey. I only use it as a backup for bittorrent (usually when i can't find what i'm looking for under bittorrent).

The most popular Bittorent client for Mac at least (but also available for Windows) is Azureus. I think the idea of a Bittorent client built right into the web browser is an awesome idea.... Opera already has it, and I think there's one for Firefox available as a plugin.

Firefox is great...
Mario F., I just noticed that if you just write "emule" to the address bar, FireFox opens the right webpage.

The BT client for Opera kind of sucks, though.
