The Chrome Web Browser - albeit an excellent browsing tool - does not permit its extensions a lot of access into its functionality. Hence, an extension that would download a .torrent file and automatically open it in the user's BitTorrent client locally can't be easily implemented. Remote Torrent Adder utilizes the WebUIs of modern BitTorrent clients to implement the functionality required for this scenario - and it works locally as well as for BitTorrent clients on other machines!
It supports the following BitTorrent clients: * Bigly/Vuze (through plugins: Vuze Remote, SwingUI, HTML WebUI) * uTorrent (including uTorrent Server, uTorrent for Mac and newer Buffalo Linkstations) * Transmission * Deluge * qBittorrent * rtorrent (ruTorrent, pyrt, NodeJS-rTorrent, flood(&-jesec), direct XMLRPC interface) * Torrentflux * Buffalo built-in torrent client * Tixati * Hadouken * Synology Downloadstation * QNAP DownloadStation * tTorrent (Android)
