With magnet links, you no longer need to download a ".torrent" file to download a torrent. Magnet links have the same functionality as a ".torrent" file. To use magnet URIs, you need only ensure that your bittorrent client is associated with them. Just click the magnet link and let the bittorrent client do the rest.
Trackers vs IndexersA bittorrent tracker coordinates communication between users attempting to download the data contained in the torrents. An indexer, on the other hand, gathers torrent data from one or more tracker sources into a central database, making it easier for you to find the content available in the public domain that interests you.
Users have found that Chrome does not recognize magnet links. There are many fixes available from bittorrent discussion forums, though most are quick to point out that Firefox does recognize magnet URIs, so many users choose to paste the link into their Firefox browser and download from there. 2b1af7f3a8
