Sometimes when you are searching for a specific file you may use Bittorrent indexers to find it. Most indexers allow you to search their index, and it happens that you have to visit and search multiple sites before you find the download that you have been looking for.
Torrent Turbo Search is a free Google Chrome extension that can be utilized to search multiple popular Bittorrent websites at once. The extension supports various sites including ThePirateBay, BTJunkie, Isohunt, Fenopy and a dozen or so others.
It adds an icon to the Chrome address bar on installation that launches a local search form to find downloads on all supported torrent websites.
All you need to do is to enter a search term in the form and hit enter afterwards. The results are listed in tabs. The first tab displays mixed results from all torrent sites that are supported by the search engine, the remaining results from individual sites.
The developer states that the search adds the best matches to the top of the results automatically.
When you look at the results you notice that the title, website address and description are displayed on the search results page. The date is displayed if the site supports it.
A click on a result opens the page on the torrent site where you can read through the comments or download the torrent information to your computer.
The search appears to support many different torrent search engines, a lot more than are displayed as tabs on the search results page. Many of them appear only in the main tab listing where all search results are mixed and the Rus tab that lists Russian torrent sites only.
The core question is this: Do you really need an extension like Torrent Turbo Search to search for downloads on multiple torrent sites? The answer is no, obviously. You can use one of the existing torrent meta search engines, for instance Metasearch or NowTorrents instead.
Still, some Chrome users may like the fact that the search engine is pretty fast and that it finds torrents on a lot of different indexing sites.
Chrome users who are interested in the popular extension can download it from the official Google Extensions repository.Advertisement
