If you are frequent Torrent/p2p user and use Firefox this will come handy for you. TorrentZ.com is world’s largest Torrent search engine, most of the time you have to navigate to other third-party sites for the download.
However, BitTorrent clients like uTorrent, Vuze (formerly Azureus) support magnet links, which, for the purpose of BitTorrent, allow users to start downloads without an actual .torrent file. This could be very helpful when torrent file download is blocked and for all other cases, adds convenience
Once installed, Firefox addon Magnetiser monitors your searches on Torrentz. If it detects that you’re on a torrent’s detail page, you’ll see “Magnetise” in the Firefox status bar. Click on Magnetise to open the torrent in your default BitTorrent client, saves time.
So here is the cause of why you should consider using it, as per author: “Not only does it save time, it also comes in handy when a torrent is no longer available on the external site. It’s also useful for people with ISPs or IT people who block .torrent file downloads.”
The add-on is not available on Firefox’s add-on section just yet, but those who want to try it can download this Zip file. Download and rename to .xpi and drag it into the Firefox browser window. After it’s installed users can add additional trackers, but since it includes the most-used trackers by default, this is not really needed. Soon Mozilla will approve it, and can be downloaded here too.
