Recently, Cory Keller, a Product Designer on the uTorrent team spoke about a new uTorrent app which the team has been working on for a long while but haven’t until recently been ready to launch it.
The app we’re talking about is the uTorrent Web application, an application which the uTorrent team claims would be the next generation of torrenting with uTorrent.
He starts the YouTube video by saying:
“It’s the streaming age, and here, at BitTorrent, we understand that nobody wants to wait for the progress bar to hit a hundred percent before they can hit play, and watch or listen to something.”
He then went ahead and explained the app:
“uTorrent Web is a browser-based torrent client that we’re developing—right now just for Windows, but we have Mac plans in works. You can search for and play from torrent files or magnet links while they download without having to leave your browser and dig through your files or other apps. Even though you can play stuff near instantly, as it downloads, it saves every file locally for you to use as you please—and you can download any file type, media or not, to a folder of your choice.”
Adding to that, he said:
“We also understand the threat of malware and open internet and one cool thing that we’ve done with uTorrent Web is to partner with Adaware—a security company that makes a browser extension for Chrome and Opera called Browser Safety. When you search for a torrent, the extension pops into action. It scans the search results for malware and prevents potentially harmful sites from ever loading into your browser. By having the results load into the extension, just click play on the link of your choice and uTorrent Web would download the torrent and play it without you ever having to visit a single website.”
To download the app, all you have to do is download and the uTorrent Web plugin from the official website. The app can be downloaded only for Windows as of now and can be used as a plugin on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.
The app has been localized into a dozen languages and is slowly growing popular in the torrenting community. As far as the team’s expectations from the app go, the app would continue to grow as much as it grew during the launch and would keep releasing new features on a regular basis, as and when the features are developed.
This doesn’t mean that the developers would forsake uTorrent Classic. The development on that end would continue and the would keep releasing new updates for it as well.
