Goodbye ExtraTorrent! Hello Zooqle!

Yesterday I posted that ExtraTorrent was closing up shop. In that post I mentioned a possible mirror, but that turned out to not be real. None of the download links worked. ExtraTorrent really is gone apparently.

That being said, if you like to torrent stuff, there are some alternative sites out there. Not all of them have RSS capabilities though. Well, I found one that does offer RSS! It's called Zooqle!

My only gripe with Zooqle is that they make you register. It's not that big of deal, but I recommend that if you register with any Torrent site, you do so while connected to a VPN connection. I also recommend NOT using your personal email address, and use one dedicated to Torrenting that also uses encryption like ProtonMail!

One thing I certainly do love about Zooqle, besides its RSS support, is the lack of intrusive advertising. One of my biggest problems with ExtraTorrent were their annoying redirect ads and pop-under ads. I respect having ads on your website. For many sites, that's their only source of revenue. I just had intrusive ads!

Now that ExtraTorrent is gone, which site or sites do you use? What alternatives do you recommend? let us know in the comments!
