BitTorrent Torque allows users to download torrents via web browser, no desktop client required

Torrent downloads and BitTorrent have been an the essential part Internet community. Several organizations rely on the services provided by BitTorrent to share downloads with other users by making use of the peer-to-peer protocol. As with any other service, or rather more than its fair share, BitTorrent also has a big and bad face for being the ‘host’ of piracy in the online world.
BitTorrent Torque is expected to not only help users get independent of dedicated desktop clients for torrents but also to help developers to build web apps. Torque Labs has already built two web apps to demonstrate its ability; ‘Paddle Over‘ helps users to share files between different computers by just dragging and dropping, while ‘OneClick‘ helps in turning torrent downloads into normal web downloads.
BitTorrent Torque is currently just in the Alpha stages; but the ramifications of this are obviously huge. Feel free to reflect in the comments  below.
