Torrent Magnifier is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices that enables you to search across multiple torrent indexing sites at once.
Desktop torrent search engines seem to have grown in popularity over the last six months or so.
Torrent Magnifier actually originated as a meta torrent search engine on the web
which is still available before an app was created out of it.. The developer's must have made the decision to create a software for the torrent search engine to increase the popularity and reach of the service.
Torrent Magnifier comes in three different versions; A desktop search engine for Windows based operating systems, a gadget for Windows Vista and Windows 7 based operating systems, and an accelerator for Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser.
The desktop torrent search engine can be used to quickly search for torrents using keywords that you enter into the form in the program interface.
Torrent Magnifier will automatically search multiple torrent sites including BTjunkie, Mininova and the Piratebay. The results are sorted by the amount of seeders, with information like the torrent's name or tracker displayed in each line as well.
A click on the Go button will open the website of the selected service in the default web browser. Here it is then possible to access additional information, and to download the torrent to the local computer system.
The difference between the gadget and desktop edition is that more information is listed in the desktop edition. Everything else is identical.
Torrent Magnifier offers a quick option to search multiple torrent websites for torrents. All three versions of the tool can be downloaded from the developer's website
