We are pleased to announce the official release of BitTorrent Web for Mac, an online torrent client with a fresh interface that helps you quickly search, download and play torrent files inside your browser.
Available at BitTorrent.com, the Mac torrent client is compatible with Safari and Chrome browsers and delivers to both new and experienced users a simplified experience on macOS Catalina and previous versions.
“With BitTorrent Web for Mac, we extended the feature set of our popular Windows Web torrent client to macOS,” said Justin Knoll, VP of Product at BitTorrent. “Now Mac users can download any file type to store locally, stream media within a browser-based player while files download, set download/upload speed limits to free up network resources for other internet tasks, and much more.”
Please note that we plan to automatically update users on the old version, BitTorrent Classic for Mac, to the new version to ensure the software continues to work seamlessly with Catalina. If you don’t have plans to update your macOS to Catalina and wish to continue using BitTorrent Classic for Mac, you will be able to download the old version from BitTorrent.com after the automatic update occurs. However, please note that if you update to macOS Catalina (version 10.15) sometime in the future, BitTorrent Classic for Mac will no longer work.
Plans to integrate BitTorrent Speed, a feature that introduces BitTorrent (BTT) token to enable faster downloads, are in the works and will be announced at a later date.
