Trackerless Magnet URI Web extension for Firefox and Chromium

Rewrites all Magnet URI links (magnet:) so that they only contain BitTorrent info hashes (BTIH). This forces BitTorrent clients to use decentralized (“trackerless”) peer-discovery such as DHT rather than server-assisted peer-discovery via central trackers.

As a concequence, downloads may initially beslower as peer-discovery can take a bit longer to setup if your client haven’t been running in a little while.
