    If WebRTC is activated in your browser and webtorrent (https://webtorrent.io/) is being used by the instance, yes. However, you could say the same for Zoom or most video calling platform, if I'm not mistaken.

    Though it isn't an ideal solution (it's rather large and doesn't have DHT support), https://webtorrent.io supports torrents in browsers.

    Tangential, I think adding support of http://webtorrent.io/ by bridging webtorrent peer with bittorent peer would greatly increase/revive the popularity of the protocol
  • aquatic BitTorrent tracker: WebTorrent support (1.8M responses/second); new UDP benchmarks (650k rps)

    I implemented support for the WebTorrent protocol in aquatic a while back. Now I’ve finally been able to add a WebTorrent file transfer test to the CI pipeline, so I feel that it is time to share an update here.

  • Decentralized in-browser torrent site
    Hi all. I've been building theofflinebay.org with the ability for it to operate decentrally. It works decentrally by using a 'database file' that contains all the search terms and torrent information within it. This database file is 1.1GB and contains almost 4 million searchable torrents. It is accessed, and shared, by your browser using WebTorrent. It's written in JavaScript and work's on any modern web browser on any OS, no installation or addons at all. All resources are embedded, so you can save the page's .HTML file to your desktop, and as long as 1 tracker is working and 1 person is seeding, it will work forever.
