uTorrent will be built in your browser!

uTorrent will be built in your browser!
uTorrent is planning a new version of its software that will run directly from your current browser.
Let's face it, most of us here use uTorrent because is the most popular and most effective Bittorrent client out there, I personally have no alternative because I know of no other popular alternative.

So, apparently, the developers of uTorrent are planning this huge change for the application by installing it as a plugin or extension inside your browser. This will result in several benefits like better and newer features but also streaming support, something that uTorrent always had problems with.

What do you think? Are you ready for such a change? I personally think it will be great! One more app I can run from my browser and I don't need to open seperatly, it seems that browser is indeed heading towards offering an OS like experience by integrating more and more apps as well as features.

I can't say I use uTorrent as much as most people do however having it built into your browser sounds like an awesome idea and definitely one that will be welcomed by many. My only concern will be will it make the browser use more resources than it does now? I noticed with the likes of Chrome and Firefox they already use so much and can in some cases cause the browser to crash. Could bringing something like uTorrent to the browsers cause more problems I wonder?

Any browser addon uses up more resources when you use that browser. I have some addons in firefox that I use all the time and having them does slow it down especially when opening multiple tabs at once. utorrent would need quite a lot of resources especially if you're downloading multiple files with it at once, all those different connections going on in the background. I don't think they should do this tbh. They should keep it as an app but they're going to do it so that it makes them money from advertising probably. So yeah, expect even more ads when you use it and a slower running browser too! uTorrent will be built in your browser!

I used to use utorrent a lot years ago but literally don't think I've used it in about 10+ years now! I guess this could be a good idea for them, since it gives them some more exposure and another way to advertise to people. There will probably be a free (ad supported) version and a premium version too I'd expect. But utorrent is often used to download many files at once and all those downloads taking place in your browser, all those connections would surely slow it down to a crawl and firefox is laggy enough at the best of times. It might work faster in Chrome but would probably depend on how many downloads you're doing and whether or not you already have a lot of addons in Chrome or not something like that.

But it could indeed be quite useful. Since utorrent itself does have a lot of practical uses. And if one of those is streaming then that would make it a useful plugin/addon to have for doing that very thing. Especially where streaming is big these days. But if that means streaming pirated movies and music then I think it would open up a whole can of worms for them and I don't suggest people to do that as they're closing the net on people that do and going after those that are streaming them without rights to. But then they've been saying that for years and just like the whole file sharing thing was a grey area for years, as it streaming right now too.

I think that sounds like a good ideal for U torrent, but I see the government cracking down on torrent sites in general, one that I used a lot called Bitsnoop, they are no longer running, and I just got a message from a 3rd party claim for copyrights because of a song that I downloading, so I'm going to lay off the torrent downloads.

I think it'd be surely a good option. I use torrent for my linux. Most of my updates for the linux distro are through new image coming in ISO format. And for this it can be a good option to seed and download from there. Having such torrent through the browser would surely be useful. And I am sure many people want to use that.

That's great news actually, I am a frequent user of utorrentz as I download atleast 3 movies a week, so this new feature is going be very handy not only to me but for all its users,

I don't really use utorrent anymore. Lately it's just full of ads, videos playing in the background out of nowhere, I mean don't get me wrong, it's a great software, but it's just not for me. I now use qbittorrent, it's free and runs just like utorrent does. I haven't noticed any difference in the speed, all I know is that the ads are gone and I can finally download in peace.

Yes there seems to be a lot of ads into the application. And also there are easy to get tracker in it. So your address will be shown. So it's always better to consider how the source of your browser can be leading to more of the issue. I personally think that utorrent is good but the non paid version seems to have too many insecure opening. And for this reason alone I'd not choose to use that app.
