"I'm really paranoid about how much these tech companies know about you. When you use some other browsers or services, you're unwittingly letting them know about everything you search, visit, look for, and do online, and even your location I'm SO OVER THAT!! So it's good that a browser like BRAVE exists"

Did you know that a 2017 study claims that the number one reason why people look after torrent sites is that they want to avail and make use of its products for free? In addition, studies also show that people rely on torrent sites because of the unavailability of the item in their region. Meanwhile, entertainment can be experienced in an instant without going out to the hustle and bustle of the city. This is possibly done through downloading motion pictures, music, ebooks, and the likes for free through websites like Kickass Torrents. Studies show that in the BitTorrent file distribution system, a torrent file is a computer file that contains metadata about files and folders to be distributed, and usually also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms. Thus, aside from these comforts, the VPN Guru blog provides advantages of using software like Torrent, as such that even if you are suddenly disconnected from the Internet or your PC shuts down/restarts, you will be able to complete the download once you’re back online. Thus, there is no need to restart from scratch. Furthermore, files are easy to find and download. The most-searched alternative sites aside from Kickass Torrents is The Pirate Bay, TorrentProject, and RARBG.
