Search & Download Torrents Right Within Chrome With BitTorrent Surf | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Torrents are one of the oldest ways of sharing files. They are somewhat controversial as they can (and do) open the way to piracy, but nevertheless, they are still one of the best ways to find and share files. Currently in alpha, Surf is a Chrome extension by BitTorrent that lets you search for and download torrents directly from within the browser. The files are saved to your Downloads folder by default, but you can change the location. You can also specify websites that you want searched for torrents. With Surf, you don’t need to have a desktop torrent client running as it can download from torrents on its own. It makes finding torrents extremely easy as well, allowing you to search for them across multiple websites of choice simultaneously.
