The largest BitTorrent tracker in the world has clocked up over 1m downloads of its PirateBrowser in the 2 months since it was released in mid-August.
The web browser was released in response to the growing number of broadband providers blocking access to The Pirate Bay and other file-sharing portals, though it was also pitched as an anti-censorship instrument.
The 1m milestone was revealed recently by the media. Despite the fact that The Pirate Bay hasn’t said how many users keep actively using PirateBrowser, the number is estimated at 0.5% of the portal’s visitors. The Pirate Bay suggests that a lot of people are eager to see the websites their governments are trying to block.
The new web browser is based on the FireFox Portable Edition, containing Tor client Vidalia to help anonymise data connections and the FoxyProxy proxy-management plugin. Back in August, The Pirate Bay described the app as a simple one-click browser which bypasses censorship and blockades and makes the website available and accessible immediately.
The Pirate Bay is blocked by Internet service providers in many countries, the United Kingdom being one of them, with Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk, O2 and Everything Everywhere being ordered by the court to stop their subscribers accessing it more than a year ago, after a case brought by music industry body.
In the meantime, PirateBrowser may not be the most popular way to get around Internet filtering and access The Pirate Bay. A few months ago, the website admitted that 8% of its page views were coming through its dedicated proxy IP-address.

|This is good for the consumer. Great job! The internet is the peoples not the corporations...|
|here lot of people using it for Porn sites ... lol|
|Following ExtraTorrent being blocked in the UK by my ISP (Talk Talk) I tried using Pirate Browser. While I could|
connect to Pirate Bay and Kick Ass Torrents and a couple of others for some strange reason ExtraTorrent was still
blocked! Now explain that! Why should anything still be blocked over the tor network? So I am now connecting to
ExtraTorrent over a good proxy site I found and it is much quicker than using Pirate Browser.
