If you compare Firefox head-on with Opera, Firefox lacks generic support to torrents. However due to FirefoxÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s extendible addons, you can still download torrents within Firefox. Thanks to Silicon Valley based company Redswoosh, who recently leaked the internal beta of FoxTorrent Firefox extension.
FoxTorrent has plenty of cool features which most standalone BitTorrent clientsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ lack. It can play streamable media (e.g. .WMV, .MOV, .MP3) files as your torrent downloads and can download torrents at a greater speed by using BitTorrent and Redswoosh at the same time.
This internal beta has some restrictions like downloading only one file from each torrent and hardly shares data with other members of the swarm, but youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll surely get a rough idea of what the final version with look like.
FoxTorrent didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work for me; it threw some errors while trying to access the FoxTorrent Download Manager. Since itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still in its internal beta, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blame it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll continue to use uTorrent and BitFox (yet another Firefox extension for downloading torrents) for a few more months. Did FoxTorrent work for you?
