03 BitTorrentWhile BitTorrent downloads are usually handled by client-side apps on your computer, it looks like they might not have to be anymore. The folks behind the original BitTorrent client and technology have come up with BitTorrent Torque: “a JavaScript interface to a custom torrent client that exposes all the power of BitTorrent to web developers.”  Basically in the future we’ll be able to make use of BitTorrent file transfer technology with only our web browsers. Pretty exciting stuff that takes file sharing to a new level.

At the moment BitTorrent Torque is far from complete, but you can expect heavy development on it to progress over the following months. I can’t wait to see what web developers can come up with using this technology.
