BitLet 4 Chrome

Downloading torrents is now easier with Google Chrome and this new extension we created.
It's called BitLet 4 Chrome and you can find it on Chrome's Extension Gallery.

Here's how it works:
The BitLet 4 Chrome extension makes it easier to download files with bittorrent using your chrome browser.
Once installed, your browser will detect all the links to torrent files within the pages you're browsing and it will make those links open BitLet's download popup, allowing you to start downloading in a few clicks.

The extension itself is Open Source: you'll find the source code at http://github.com/abahgat/BitLet4Chrome

Great minds think alike I guess :) haha. I've been using the Bitlet Bookmarklet as a "Userscript" in Chrome lately.....until I found that it interfered with some pages....I guess when it would scavenge the source looking for .torrent links it would cause weird screen flickers to occur! haha.

I'll have to try this and see how it works out.

Only other "workaround" I was thinking of was trying the @include so it would only execute the javascript on certain domains (mininova, bittorrent, ubuntu, openoffice.org, etc).

If you're curious how it looked, I put it up on pastebin dot com slash Ph5nEYK8

Hi, this is the first time i been here. I Look your apps and it was really good. I have a website, its a streamer community website which is base on Torrents. I use Torrent Stream (i think its Russian) and its was good and bad. The downside is if the user have medium speed internet than the player will be lagging like hell. If their website down then the player also cannot be used. The upside is the player support embedding.

I just need to know, is it possible to embed your apps to the website. This website need more faster and friendly user apps to be embed on page. Anyway, good job man. Sharing is caring. I love torrents so much.

Hello Sir, good day,with regards to Bitlet, and I would like to ask, if you know any solution for unfinished downloads with Bitlet, I accidentally deleted the torrent in the page, after I close the separate window using java app. The file which I downloaded consumed 7.28GB of space in my harddrive, it was already at 85%.

I'm searching for the file in the temporary files, and the temp files of my harddrive, including the directory path which I chose, yet I still cant find the file.

Is there any remedy or solution that you could possibly help me at?
I really would like to have that 7.28GB space back. Hope you could have a spare time to reply this message.

Thank you very much.

where can valid torrents be found, in 3 years I have not found any that work - 0 seeders, likewise I have no way to tell if this bitlet works, though with dead torrents it is good at allocating gigabyte empty files, wait'll some a-hole uploads one of those, like 101mb and 3-part 1g files from thathustle that are renamed, split, rar'd, renamed, split, and rar'd, got an .avi file won't play, rename extension to rar and unrar again - 101mb files are typically Greenday live (missing tracks) and 1g file is Rise of Planet of Apes, some A-hole renames same archives to new CDs & DVDs and floods sites like extabit, rapidgator, etc
