Torrent Harvester is free search utility that can search for BitTorrent (BT) torrents on multiple websites or torrent trackers, and return the results in a single list. Actually its search function extends beyond torrents searching, where Torrent Harvester can easily configured to search for any type of file contained on a web page. This is done via addition of new search engines. And any search failure due to site redesign can be easily remedied with alteration of existing engines. But its main usefulness is finding torrents from many trackers from one window, as implied also in program name.
Why search torrents on many websites or torrent tracker sites? Firstly because not all tracker sites will have information on all torrent files available on the Internet and still can be downloaded from seeders. Secondly, popularity and quality of each tracker websites is different, thus some .torrent files provided by some network may only have low seeders causing slow download speed, or worse, no one is seeding the files causing no downloading process even started. Solution? Find a better torrent on another tracker site.
Torrent Harvestor or TH can make searching for torrent files easy, eliminating the need to go to multiple websites via web browser manually, thus users able to bypass and skip all those annoying pop-ups, advertising, spyware and virus threats. Simply download and install Torrent Harvestor, and all you have to do is just enter some text (such as movie name, software title and etc.), and press Enter or click the search button. The list will then be populated and filled with torrents found. Right clicking a torrent in the list will bring up a menu to download the torrent and start your BitTorrent client.
