BitTorrent releases Surf for Chrome, grab your torrents in your web browser

Surf, a torrent browsing extension for Chrome is here

| Apps News | Posted: Jan 11, 2013 6:01 pm

BitTorrent Inc. says that they are still determined to make its file sharing protocol mainstream for legitimate uses, and the launch of its Chrome extension called "Surf" proves it.

 

 

In development for the past six months, Surf allows users to search for and download torrents from directly within Google Chrome. The extension queries search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, and appends the search term with "torrent".

Users have the option to add their favorite torrent search site, and Surf even queries the internet archive, allowing entire websites, videos, and all things internet to be downloaded with relative ease. The alpha version of Surf is available in the Chrome Store and the company said that there is a Firefox version coming soon.
