FireTorrent – Download Torrents with Firefox

One of the drawbacks of Firefox was that it didn’t support downloading torrents as the Opera browser. With FireTorrent, we can add this functionality to download torrents without having to have a separate client. The Firefox add-on is still in alpha test version, but is fully operational. The FireTorrent can be very useful for people who do not need the full capabilities of a separate client, but just want simplicity.

Because it is still in alpha version it is therefore not customizable yet, something that will change when fully developed. Another issue for the alpha version is the upload speed which is locked at 15kB / s. The FireTorrent is integrated in Wyzo, the browser based on Firefox and is dedicated for torrents.
