Summary

This extension allows you to send torrent files from your browser to your remote or local Bittorrent client's web interface.

It doesn't just send the urls to the WebUIs, but downloads the torrent and uses the file upload function of the UIs to add the torrent. Thus, it even works on private trackers that require cookies.

Currently, it supports several web interfaces, a full list can be viewed on the project page.

Per default, this extension scans any open page for links that match given filters and overwrites the download-action, but its functionality can also be accessed via a context menu.

Its filters are easily extensible using regular expressions via the options page, but a basic set of filters should work for most sites.

For faq, support (issues) or the latest changes, please visit the GitHub page that is linked in the "DETAILS" tab of this page.

То, что было надо. Добавляет, в частности, иконку в локальное меню для ссылок. Жалко только, что не открывается окно закачки uTorrent, чтобы выбрать куда качать и что качать.
