List of Firefox Torrent Addon


Let’s begin with the best addon, the FireTorrent, but this one will not work with the latest iterations of Firefox as the development was stopped sometime ago. Although, the developer has given out information that an updated version maybe released soon. With this addon, which currently works fine with Firefox 3.5 and below, you can directly download torrent files without any torrent client. The download can be paused, previewed and everything within Firefox browser and can be viewed with the Downloads window. There are other options to select the download folder, change port, manage upload and download speeds and more.

This Firefox Torrent addon, which happens to be one of the best Torrent Finder Toolbar for firefox, because it adds a toolbar with all of your favorite torrent sites. You can then search for all your torrents, directly from the toolbar and also get the torrent files without any hassle. There are over 180 torrent sites that you can search from using this toolbar, plus you can open the site in a new tab and view the content that you were looking for.

Just like the Google search toolbar, Torrent Search adds the torrent search engine to make it easier for you to look for torrents. When you search for a file, movie or game, it takes you to a page that is constantly updated with the latest torrents available on the internet. You can also select text on any web page and right click to search on Torrent.to, which would give you instant results. It even has an auto-complete feature that suggests the torrent name you’re looking for.

    I downloaded Torrent Finder Firefox Toolbar but later removed it because I didn’t find it useful.
    I currently use Divx and Torrentz 🙂

    Right now I’m using FireTorrent addon to download torrents from my browser. I think it is the best addon right now among the others.

    I don’t use any addon to search torrent files. I like to directly go to kat.ph (which is my fav torrent site) and search for files.
