Bit Torrent WebUI+
This Firefox extension allows you to simply click a torrent or magnet link and have it automatically uploaded to your Bit Torrent client through your preferred web interface. This is especially useful if you do a lot of browsing on a different computer than the one which is running your Bit Torrent client.
The addon can be enabled/disabled easily by clicking the status icon to switch between local or remote torrent handling.
Source code is maintained on GitHub:

- Vuze and Azureus are supported through the following Remote Control plugins
- AzSMRC (no magnet support)
- HTML WebUI
- Swing WebUI (no magnet support)
- ruTorrent webui for rTorrent
- Transmission BT
- Be aware this addon is for use with WebUI interfaces and does not work with uTorrent Remote.
uTorrent 3.0 still supports enabling classic WebUI interfaces through the options.
- Deluge magnet support requires Deluge 1.3.5 or greater.
- ruTorrent and deluge installations can be configured with the path option. Be aware that the path is case sensitive.
- Make sure you are running the latest version to get all the supported features. If the version has not been reviewed by Mozilla you may be required to manually update to that version using the links below.
- The addon does work in Firefox 29+ however the icon does not change state correctly when the addon is enabled/disabled and there have been problems with saving the settings. I have removed FF 29+ from the compatibility lists for now to avoid complaints about the bugs but users can still install it if they accept the limitation. I am working on a new version for FF29+ and mobile devices.
- Thanks go to http://www.kphservices.com for the free seedbox they donated for client testing.
