In order to attract even more people to BitTorrent, uTorrent parent company released a new application a few days ago. Named Chrysalis, the new client is designed specially for novice Internet users who are usually overwhelmed by the traditional uTorrent and the mainline applications. Moreover, in the near future Chrysalis is expected to replace BitTorrent’s mainline client.
The two applications of BitTorrent Inc. currently account for more than 100 million active users each month, with this number tending to increase.
Although the company’s user base is undoubtedly very impressive, there is still an untapped potential. In fact, many new users try both applications several times, but do not remain regular users. The statistics showed that during 2010 less than 30% of new clients became monthly active users. A huge number of Internet users download and install the application, but fail to understand exactly how to use it, which makes them decide to uninstall the new software very quickly.
In order to break this model, BitTorrent Inc. has launched a new project believed to be able to keep more users on board. As a result, the first Alpha version of Chrysalis client was released.
Although the current version of the client is a very early Alpha, it still can indicate where the company is going with its new application. The main feature of the client is that it is already filled with a few prominently placed apps providing access to downloads. In other words, the new users are now able to see content right away when they launch the application. The reason for doing so is that most users stop using the client because of a perceived lack of content, as newcomers sometimes have no idea where they can find content itself. So, the simplified Chrysalis interface is supposed to be much more welcoming to people unfamiliar to BitTorrent network.
Downloads in the new client can be added by a single click, and then the downloaded media can be launched in a media player directly from the client. Chrysalis, built on the uTorrent v3.0 codebase, is aiming at more media-rich experience. Although that won’t be 100% sufficient to solve the problem, it will still be able to establish a new platform to develop further.
Meanwhile, uTorrent users are assured that their application will de developed separately.
