There are torrent clients that can let users download files, but:
- Webtorrent-Desktop - does not have support for customizing torrent trackers and does not have features BiglyBT have. It's heavy on RAM.
- qbittorrent - offers almost all except the decentralized features of BiglyBT, but have problems with DHT on torrents that have less peers
- transmission - no decentralized features (except DHT, transmission supports it), listens only on 1 tracker at a time
- deluge - as above
