Vuze, originally known as Azureus, is both a network of content and an all-in-one bittorrent client/application written in Java, which makes it rather platform independent. Vuze allows you to find, download, play and share high-quality content.
Bittorrent is a way for computers to distribute large amounts of data in a highly efficient way, and is a very effective way to download large files, such as high-definition (HD) and DVD-quality videos. A torrent is simply a description of a file or collection of files that is being distributed via bittorrent. Vuze, Inc. uses bittorrent to distribute the video and other content available from the Vuze Network, and the Vuze client has a rich-featured bittorrent client at its core for downloading files and participating in bittorrent file distribution.

Using an old Java version, or having more than one installed, may cause severe problems like 100% CPU usage! If you have installed Azureus but it is behaving strangely (eg. no windows display after the program launches) you probably need to upgrade your Java
The Vuze Toolbar is sometimes marked as adware since it offers toolbars, software offers and ads. In fact, it does not collect any personal information and is completely "spyware"-free and "adware"-free.
