This web torrent thing has annoyed me hugely. Torrents have been a thing for pretty much a decade, and it’s entirely normal to expect them to still be there after closing your torrent program and reopening it later.
For the first time ever, I was automatically diverted to ‘Web Torrents’ today and simply assumed it was a nifty in-browser torrent service, so I left it to run. But no, I was wrong. After switching off my laptop and taking it home from work, I have found that everything I was downloading is completely gone.
I don’t understand why you would even implement something as pointless as that?!?!?! A torrent downloader that needs to complete the full download before it even SAVES it? Really?
Just remove it, let users donwload torrent links like normal. We don’t all sit with our browser open 365 days of the year. This has annoyed me so much, it’s enough to make me stop using Brave entirely. Seriously I don’t understand how this was left in. It’s not even useful, it’s more like a sadistic trap aimed at deliberately annoying users.
