Download.com Staff Feb 19, 2009

Our time with this free torrent downloader was brief because a glitch prevented it from working properly. FoxTorrent is a Firefox add-on that appears in your Tools menu.

According to the four-step guide that details how the program works, you're supposed to be able to click on a torrent, and the program automatically starts the download process. But in our tests, we continually received an error message stating that the Red Swoosh service was missing. No details were given about what that service was, but we were given the option to reinstall it. Even after this "fix," we still couldn't get the program to work. The Red Swoosh service appeared to reinstall, but we still received errors messages when we tried to download torrents.

There are thousands (if not millions) of really good Firefox extensions. This isn't one of them. If you're looking for a Firefox-compatible torrent program, we suggest that you overlook this one and keep searching.
