Find Downloads On Multiple Torrent Sites

When you are searching for a specific torrent sometimes 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 like ThePirateBay, Isohunt, BTJunkie, 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 search appears to support many different torrent search engines, a lot more than are displayed as tabs on the search results page.

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.

Chrome users who are interested in the popular extension can download it from the official Google Extensions repository.
