Summary

This extension is unique in that it requires only a 40-character info hash to start your torrent download.

No torrent files or magnet links are required to quickly get started fetching the metadata for your download, just a 40-character hexadecimal code comprised of numbers and letters.

With this extension, you can highlight the above text then right click and begin downloading! No longer can peer-to-peer file sharing be censored effectively when web users can manually initiate their own downloads.

This extension is compatible with any torrent client that supports the magnet URI scheme.

IF THIS EXTENSION DOES NOT WORK IMMEDIATELY FOR YOU, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST:

This extension works in conjunction with your torrent client. By default, it will open the program you download torrents with if it is able to handle magnet URI addresses. If there is no torrent client set to work with the magnet protocol in Chrome however, you may experience a problem.

I don't know what all these people in the Reviews have a problem with. This works as intended: Select a hash, right click, click the extension, and it downloads in your torrent client. Seems to me that this pulls on several sources because so far it has been downloading fast. It's just a shame that I need to click an extra button when it opens a new tab for this...

I believe the people leaving negative reviews don't know what this extension does. It lets you create a torrent/magnet from an info hash, so you don't need an actual torrent/magnet link to be present. Example: I use this extension on meta search site torrentz2.eu, which DOESN'T HOST ANY TORRENT/MAGNET LINKS, but DOES SHOW AN INFO HASH. This site wants you to continue to one of the hosting sites in their search results and get the torrent/magnet from there. But with this extension you don't have to anymore, just select the info hash and let the extension add it to your BT client. Don't leave a bad review just bc you don't know what an extension is for. 1 bug I did encounter; each time I use the extension it closes my last tab.
