Tixati is a proprietary cross-platform BitTorrent client written in C++ designed to be light on system resources. Its developers release standalone and portable versions with each new client versions. It has received a positive reception, and most reviews praised it for its lightweight design.
In addition to standard BitTorrent client sharing functions, Tixati provides integral chatrooms with the channel chat as well as private messaging being strongly encrypted. According to Tixati's support page, "the Channels feature of Tixati is a particularly good demonstration of how to build a decentralized networked application that supports very high throughputs whilst remaining cryptographically secure in a 100% decentralized environment. This includes a linear network-coded decentralized media streaming feature, which is secured by a homomorphic hash function and elliptic-curve signatures (the first system of its kind to be implemented successfully.)"

Browsing a specific user's share list is also supported. The channels also allow for streaming audio and video media.
