I used to really like uTorrent. It was, and still is light (both in terms of download size and memory footprint), fast, and easy to use. However, I've been turned off by their increasing tendency to do scammy things (like have the browser toolbar option checked by default, and the like), so I'd like to switch away.
Hence this question. If uTorrent was out of the question, which BitTorrent client would you recommend for Windows 7?
