The Super Representatives have been making great advancements.
After years of keeping it in a beta stage, uTorrent Web was finally released for Windows and can be used on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.
Cory Keller, a Product Designer on the uTorrent Web team talked about this release in a YouTube video. He started off by telling users why there was a need for the update:
“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 explained the application:
“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 it, he says:
“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.”
He then talked about how the users would be informed about all of the updates made to the application and that people shouldn’t be worried about uTorrent Classic’s development. While it is true that there would be a lot of development done on the Web end, Classic would not be forgotten and there would hence be a lot of development going on on its end as well.

The network itself is being used for a lot of innovation. Not too long ago, Sesameseed announced that SEEDgerminator has been launched. SEEDgerminator is an accelerator that has been made for developers who want to create their own DApps, tokens, and technology on the TRON network.
There had also been news about a new TRON-based music platform called MusicCasper (MC) finalizing its slogan. It is a decentralized global music platform and is in its early stages—scheduled to go live in spring next year.
Using blockchain technology, the platform creates a seamless connection between the creators of music and their listeners. It aims to create a unified, transparent, and decentralized database portal where the royalties are paid in a much more efficient way with smart contracts reducing human-based issues.
The way the system works is that the artists upload original music and when they do, it becomes instantly accessible to the users of the platform. This removes the eons-old problem of artists—registering copyrights and signing deals with record labels for receiving payment for users listening to their music.
As the team puts it:
“It is the mission of MC to bring the control and power back to the artist, regardless of whether your content is downloaded or streamed, the value to access it should be set by the creator.”
