If I leave webtorrent does it stop the torrent?

Just wondering as I did that.

Yes, your downloads still continue. Navigating to another window in your browser, or closing the window where µTorrent Web is running does not stop your download(s). As long as µTorrent Web is running and available in your system tray, your downloads will continue until completed. Of course, you can stop your downloads manually by exiting the application or by pausing or removing the torrent(s) from your Torrent Feed.

Hi. I am talking about brave browser’s built-in webtorrent extension.

oh okay, sorry for misinterpreting you lol.

No, closing the tab will cease seeding.
Webtorrent files are stored and run directly in memory - once you close the tab, that memory is freed and content removed.
