uTorrent Griffin Adds Extension-Style Functionality (Like Virus Scanning)

Windows only: The popular BitTorrent client uTorrent today released an alpha version of uTorrent 2.2, adding a new Apps functionality that allows users to extend uTorrent’s functionality while keeping the core application fast and lightweight.

Sure, everyone’s going a little “app store” crazy these days, but think of the uTorrent Apps more like Firefox extensions. They’re web-based, and they’re capable of adding great functionality to the already excellent BitTorrent client with just a couple of clicks. (Navigate to the App section by clicking on Apps in the left sidebar.) Current app offerings include Virus Guard (a free virus scanner that checks your downloads for malware), uGadget (a toolbar for Firefox or IE that controls your downloads), a game gadget, and an extension that searches indie film site VODO.

uTorrent Griffin is a free download, Windows only. It’s an alpha release, so only download if you don’t mind a bug or three.
