We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

WebTorrent Desktop behaves similar to other torrent clients. You need to manually add torrents to the client.

We don't want to make the client automatically download popular content, or seed it, or anything like that. The user should decide what to share since the content could be unencrypted and that's potentially dangerous.

If you're looking for some good torrents you can seed, I recommend the "Featured Torrents" at the bottom of this page: https://webtorrent.io/desktop

Let me know if you have other questions. Cheers!
