While there are a number of popular torrent clients available today, ZbigZ sets itself apart by being a completely web based application. Since the entire ZbigZ experience happens on the cloud, you don't need to download any software directly to you computer, and you can handle everything you need to handle securely through any popular web browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Opera. This is useful for a number of reasons. It minimizes the impact of performance on your location machine, makes it more difficult to track your IP address, and lets you clear up more space on your computer by saving your downloaded files directly on the cloud. It takes the sort of virtual living spaces popularized by Google's suite of products and applies it to the traditional environment of torrent clients. One of the main advantages of ZbigZ is that it's completely free to use, and they manage to stay in business through the inclusion of advertising. For the most part, these ads are benign and less intrusive than those you'll find on many torrent hubs. Users can pay for a subscription to increase their bandwidth allocation and storage space, but individuals who only need a torrent client they'll be using sporadically should find their needs well served by a ZbigZ free account. The interface at ZbigZ is simple to use but limiting. Unlike traditional, local clients which will automatically start a download by clicking on a torrent link, ZbigZ by its nature requires you to manually enter the link to the torrent you're trying to download directly into their search bar. This creates an extra step in the downloading process, but it's relatively painless once you get used to it. All in all, the interface is bland and understated, but it gets the job done as well as you might expect. Privacy is an additional advantage of using ZbigZ as opposed to traditional competitors. While VPNs can help you hide your IP address when making downloads, many VPNs impose strict limitations on the use of torrent software, and many ISPs have begun cracking down on torrent downloads by throttling the traffic of users connected to the BitTorrent network. ZbigZ manages to work around these problems by putting everything online and making use of HTTPS security protocol. As such, you won't have to be worried about your IP address being tracked and penalties being levied as a result. Also, this cloud based connection means that your files will continue downloading even if your computer is turned off or not connected to the internet. Once you've finished your download, you can retrieve it to your local machine, keep it on the ZbigZ cloud, or transfer it over to another cloud service. Users can also stream videos and music, so you won't need to completely finish your download before you start making use of your downloaded media.
The "father of all cloud torrent providers" - Zbigz has a great customer support and works without registration. But...how do I know that the tech support is great? Because there is a lot of glitches involved. Also Zbigs should really go through a redesign - being the oldest one comes with few cons. When works, zbigz is fast as hell and as far as I can tell, you are also absolutely secure while using it. All together - it is definitelly worth a shot, however there are some torrent providers, that are technologically far ahead.
