Hello!

I'm kinda new in the whole torrents thing and have a question about it:
My brother told me that "Opera" browser has a built-in torrent manager so I tried using it and wasn't that impressed...
So I searched a little and found that there is another browser with a built in torrent but i couldn't find its name or where to download it from.

Did you hear something about it?

Thx a lot!

A quick answer, with a very quick WARNING -
Wyzo: A Browser with Built-in Support for Torrents
You realise that these are the people behind Warez, that pile of spyware infested crap that has been abandoned for the last nine months? I'd check your machine for adware now you've installed it... wouldn't trust this lot with anything.

I'll advice you this... I dunno about the "Wyzo browser" security issues , but i just started to use browser called "torch".
I didn't want a separate software for torrents' downloading and then i found this browser.
To make it short - i'm now using it and can download torrents + magnets easily and pretty fast.
so Rob if you're worried about spyware and stuff i think you should get torch instead of wyzo because torch didn't caused me any problems.

Hope i helped!! :busy:

Always make sure that you are using a decent Antivirus at all times, regardless of the browser that you use -

Thx for your answers!
I've just downloaded this Torch browser and I find it very cool and useful so far.
In addition to the torrent manager (which is super-fast! I must say it surprised me), I mostly use the "video grabber" button it has to download videos from almost every site I tried (metacafe, youtube, vimeo...).

You should try it too!
