    why wouldn't it be unlawfull? Firefox is an opensource project, and bittorrent is a perfectly legitiment and efficient way to transfer data across the internet.

    Its only the act of downloading copyrighted or licenced material thats illegal. Downloading Unlicenced fansubs of anime is legal.

    BITTORRENT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY ANY BROWSER AS OF YET!

    you need an external program that runs the bit torrents.

    what you do in the browser is download the bittorrents and possibly configure the program if it operates through a web interface (useful if you are going away and want to monitor your progress {REQUIRES LIVE IP AND PORT FORWARDING TO ACCES FROM REMOTE LOCATION, but you should have the port forwarding in place already anyway....})

    and now i shut up because while bit torrent is a perfectly legal file transfer protocall much of the trafic that is generated by the protocall is not.

    oh, in that case lord katsu, they are still using an external program that is using the browser as the GUI to save on compiled size (it takes a lot of coding to make a good GUI, not to mention they can be a B#### to debug...)

    programs like that can be usefull because they can allow you to track/monitor/control your torrent downloads from a remote location. thus saving you the need to actually be in front of the computer to change your bittorrent settings.
