Torrent From the Cloud With Seedr

Most people download torrents with desktop clients such as uTorrent, but Seedr takes torrenting into the cloud and the browser. Hiding users’ IP addresses from the public and bypassing any P2P restrictions, with a totally free tier to get people started, the service is rapidly gaining traction. BitTorrent is a formidably popular tool, used to share files of all sizes, but it relied on desktop software clients in order to function, Seedr makes it possible to use in the browser. On a basic level it’s as simple as making an account (just an email address is required) and either dragging or uploading a torrent to the service. Seedr is also fully magnet link capable and can even find a torrent when supplied with just the URL of a page. Seedr then does all the downloading and sharing itself without any local IP addresses being exposed to a torrent swarm and bypassing any network restriction that may be imposed. This means the service helps to maintain user privacy too.
