Hello,
What is the difference between Multibit and other wallets for BTC? Which one is the best for now ? What are the + and - of all wallets?
Thanks!

Multibit is a lightweight client. Meaning: No downloading of the blockchain and ready to go in minutes.

there are some lightweight clients like multibit and electrum. Other clients like Bitcoin QT need to download the whole blockchain, this takes one week to first download it!

The loading is just the synching of your wallet.
