Syncthing replaces Dropbox and BitTorrent Sync with something open, trustworthy and decentralized.

    Just going on the “But when you do, it is much faster to pick up changes than either of the other two…” bittorrent sync is set to rescan every 600s (which you can change to 60s or lower if you wish inside prefs>adv. prefs) where as the default for syncthing is 60 seconds which will burn up more cpu just idling than btsync. & btsync does have a key feature over open source syncing tools, if firewalls are present on both sides of a connection it uses their bittorrent sync server as a tunnel and everything is encrypted http://www.bittorrent.com/sync/technology “Traffic Relay”… supposedly ;), but I do love that I can know exactly what is going on in syncthing :)
