I’m a huge fan of Torrents as they are one of the easiest way to download files on Internet. More over, for most of the files you are downloading via torrent, you don’t need to wait for single person to be online. In most of the cases there are multiple seeders (Uploader) for the same file, and with resume capability you don’t need to worry about disconnecting from internet and losing your file.

This is useful for people in offices or colleges where torrent downloading is banned and they need an alternate web-based option. Though before we move ahead, here are some of the resources from the past which will help you to get more out of torrents.
