WebTorrent Portable, streaming browser torrent client!
"One of the most exciting uses for WebTorrent is peer-assisted delivery. Non-profit projects like Wikipedia and the Internet Archive could reduce bandwidth and hosting costs by letting visitors chip in. Popular content is served browser-to-browser, quickly and cheaply. Rarely-accessed content is served reliably over HTTP from the origin server." —Feross Aboukhadijeh, founder
"Besides being able to stream torrents to your desktop, WebTorrent Desktop can also stream torrents to AirPlay, Chromecast, and DLNA." —Andrew, WebUpd8.org (May 16, 2016)
"One problem with using WebRTC to facilitate downloads within your browser is that VPN users really should disable WebRTC, as it can leak your real IP address to websites. I did, however, find that downloading via Instant.io worked fine in Chrome with the WebRTC Leak Prevent add-on installed (as this prevents IP leaks, but only partially disables WebRTC)." —Douglas Crawford, BestVPN.com (2016-04-11)
WebTorrent Desktop is for streaming torrents, whether it's video from the Internet Archive, music from Creative Commons, or audiobooks from Librivox, you can play it right away. You don't have to wait for it to finish downloading.
