    Seriously? Downloading large files through web browsers is seriously the worst way to go about it.
    Torrents are faster and far more stable when dealing with large files.

    My experience with Torrents have been Horrid, However one cannot disagree that Downloading large files through a browser is pretty Unreliable.

    EDIT: I've had many "large" files end up corrupted or the Browser states the download is finished when in actuality it wasn't.

    Your experiences are either out of date or your internet is complete shit.

    Torrents are awesome. Problem is that it's used a lot for piracy and sometimes your provider will try to throttle them.
