    Default BitTorrent Turns Web Browsers Into a File-Sharing Hub

    Source: BitTorrent Turns Web Browsers Into a File-Sharing Hub


    BitTorrent Inc., the people behind the popular BitTorrent client uTorrent, have just unveiled a new project that turns web browsers into fully fledged file-sharing hubs. “Torque” uses the new Btapp.js library and enables developers to code a wide variety of browser-based file-sharing apps. To show what it’s capable of, BitTorrent released a torrent client for Chrome and a browser-based file-sharing app.
    Downloading torrents in a web-browser is nothing new. Opera integratedBitTorrent support half a decade ago, and for other browsers there areplugins and web-based tools available.
    However, BitTorrent Inc. believes that much more can be done from the browser environment. A few hours ago the San Francisco-based company released an alpha version of “Torque,” a new project that aims to further integrate BitTorrent downloading into the browser.
    With Torque, developers can easily build a wide variety of downloading and sharing web-apps.
    “Torque is both an underlying, fully fledged torrent client, as well as a simple JavaScript interface designed to make the technology as accessible as possible,” Patrick Williams, lead engineer on Torque told TorrentFreak.
    “Our hope is that the development and use of torrent technologies can scale the same way that a torrent swarm does, and this is our initial effort towards that goal.”
    BitTorrent Inc. is currently showcasing two Torque based apps. One is an extension for the Chrome browser which allows users to download torrent files as if they were regular files.
    The second tool is called “Paddle Over,” a website through which users can easily share files with each other from any browser. People can share files with just one person, or a whole group, depending on who they choose to share the invite link with.

    Paddle Over, one of the Torque apps


    Torque is still in an early phase of development, so bugs are to be expected. However, over time BitTorrent Inc. hopes many great and innovative apps will be built with it.
    “One of our aims here is to help artists and publishers build better ways to reach fans, and we believe that Torque can be a powerful tool for them to distribute their work. The overarching goal here is what it’s always been for us as a company; open innovation on the Internet,” Williams told TorrentFreak.
    Torque is clearly a new direction for BitTorrent Inc., the company which is mostly known for their flagship software uTorrent. Two month ago we revealed that BitTorrent may be looking to re-brand itself as Gyre, and perhaps Torque is part of this new direction.
    Developers who want to build Torque apps are invited to take a look at the Btapp.js library. Users can check out the first apps in the Torque labs.

    Why would one want a bittorrent client built in their browser?

    Imagine the Feds arrive at your house claiming you are a pirate, HDD's can be hidden but if you deleatedd stuff off your computer the records would still be there.
    However with a web app all the details would be stored on an encrypted central server so the feds at your house would never find a trace of piracy.

    Food for thought, is a good phrase for that. My HDDs are encrypted, but with a web app torrent client in Chrome as a google product, the biggest data collector in the world, I guess my encrypetd HDD is safer than the one at google. Especially if the fed ask them politely to give them the data.
    I also wouldn't use google checkout to pay for my seedbox (lol @ feralhosting), connected with my google account, my google e-mails, my google+ and my google browser with the built-in torrent client. Maybe I'm just paranoid but "raver safe tan sorey" - gooby.

    True, thats why i use SR ware iron, chromium.
    No you cant really trust companies unless you blackmail them to do your bidding, they exist to rip money off people.
    Its also why i have about 15 different emails and at least 7 different personalities (never know when a plea of insanity would work:-D )

    true i would never want to put my hand/head/foot/girlfriend in Googles jaw

    Looks like sort of a seedbox. Otherwise it's gonna be just a regular torrent-client.

    It enables mobility... that's why it has been on the Web. In addition, using the web would greatly increase the number of platforms which are able to use Bittorrent, hence higher market shares.
