Top 10 Most Popular Torrent Sites of 2009

My husband and I are avid torrent sites users. He usually use it to download songs and games (PC and PSP) while I use it to download TV shows, documentaries and movies we missed watching. Sure, downloading these stuff online are barely legal but heck, we have spent obscene amounts of money on buying original games and albums, and watching movies in cinemas -- aren't we entitled to free torrents download every now and then?? :p Anyway, without much further ado, here's the Top 10 Most Popular Torrent Sites of 2009 as chosen by TorrentFreak.com --

For the not-so internet-savvy: torrents are are specialized files utilized in peer-to-peer (P2P) network environments. P2P is a network of personal computers that communicate with one another by running proprietary P2P software. Unlike usual downloads off the internet, torrents do not point to a single source when requesting files. Instead, torrents contain specific information that multiple computers in the network can read to send various parts of the requested file simultaneously and en masse. Torrents keep active track of which parts of the file are needed to complete the request. By downloading bits of the file from dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of sources, large files can download very quickly. And that's why we love torrents so much!! ^_^
