BitTorrent is a great tool for downloading large files, and with enough number people to piggy-back off (called seeding) it can slash download times to a fraction of the time it would usually take. But the problem for most people, especially newcomers to the technology, is it can be quite difficult to understand how to make it all work, especially since you typically need to install a BitTorrent client first.
One Click Torrent to the rescue. This Chrome web browser extension installs once into the browser and from then on, when you click on a BitTorrent file link, it will download just like a normal file download, and with the relevant suffix (e.g. MP3) all ready to go. No external torrent client needed. It’s a major step up for inexperienced newbies to the whole torrent arena, and for that reason is to be applauded.
Experienced users will probably not bother, especially as the extension seems to clash with uTorrent, which is the most popular BitTorrent freeware client around at the moment. But if you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about with torrents and you’re a Chrome user, try this out, it could change your life!
