Download Torrents without a client

Torrent2Exe is a simple web application which lets you download a torrent without the need of client on your Windows PC. An executable is generated from a link to the torrent or a torrent file on the disk which automatically downloads your torrent. This helps you to send the exe to your friends who do not have to bother to install a bittorrent client or search for the torrent. Torrent2Exe also provides with links which helps you to publish them on the web so that users can download the torrents without clients.

Now lets try to download a torrent using Torrent2Exe. I choose to download CentOS (Community ENTerprise OS) 64 Bit DVD using torrent. I browsed to one of the download mirrors and copied the link address to the torrent.
