ExtraTorrent Is Second Largest Torrent Site Worldwide

ExtraTorrent Is Second Largest Torrent Site Worldwide

However, we won’t talk about ourselves today. The leader is still The Pirate Bay, which turned 13 a few days ago. This is a decent age – most of other giants have fallen in the past, but the notorious Pirate ship has stayed afloat. TPB team can clearly be recognized for their remarkable achievement.


Of course, Hollywood hoped that it would never happen, but the largest torrent site in the world is still alive and quietly turned 13 years old. The Pirate Bay was founded in 2003 by Swedish pro-culture organization Piratbyrån (Piracy Bureau) in order to create the first public file-sharing network in the country. However, the platform soon turned into the global file-sharing icon and remains it today.

Of course, Hollywood has made numerous attempts to shut The Pirate Bay down over years. Under pressure from the Hollywood and the US government, Swedish authorities raided TPB a decade ago, but it came back stronger. The site owners were convicted, arrested one by one and served their sentence, but it didn’t kill the platform either, nor did any of the subsequent attempts to take it offline.

Today The Pirate Bay is still very much alive – and this very fact by itself is quite an achievement, especially taking into account all the other websites that have fallen over the years. KickassTorrents was shut down just a month ago. Torrentz followed its fate a few weeks after. Naturally, many of their users are now turning to The Pirate Bay to get new content, making it the most visited torrent site, once again.

The TPB team is not quite happy with the circumstances, but they admit that the website has an important role to fulfill in the torrent community. They point out that The Pirate Bay is as important today as it used to be, and its role will continue for the foreseeable future. Although it has its flaws and glitches, it’s still the go-to platform for all the current media needs.

Indeed, one must agree that the site is very resilient – 13 years after The Pirate Bay came online, it is on the top of the rankings once again. TorrentFreak recently published a yearly overview of the top 5 torrent sites of the last decade, and The Pirate Bay was the only website that appeared in the list every year in a row. This is the best illustration of the impact TPB had and still has today.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.

BADASSMEDIA avatarIm really glad KAT isn't number one site anymore. Site was a joke that constantly took down torrents by complying with takedown requests and was full of trolls. Where did that get the owner who is on trial for copyright infringement? Obeyed takedown requests and still trying to get slammed by U.S. authorities for infringment. With that being said glad TPB and ET are top two torrent sites now however I think ET should be first and TPB second. TPB really needs to update their code still great torrent site though.

notheotherone avatari miss KAT, but i've also been an anon ET user for as long as i've been torrenting. i will never understand the appeal of TPB, though. maybe i'm just not that into endless and unremeoved spam virus files, or 17 trillion hardcore porn torrents every hour on the hour. don't get me wrong, i'm a dude, porn happens. i know, i'm a sad excuse for a human. BUT... seriously, how can there be that much porn? every man woman and child that ever lived banging all day couldn't make that much porn. that's why i'm not a fan of TPB. unbelievably excessive amounts of porn, plus viruses and malware from jerkwater wannabe scammers and hackers. hanks, ET, for at least keeping the porn off the main page. oh, and for making sure that everything is clean, i've never dl'd anything malicious from this page over the years, i appreciate it.

EZeeMunny avatarIts the quality rather than the quantity. I have never got malware or virus's here and that's what I appreciate. I just wish ET would just keep its head down a bit. I used KAT a couple of times recently to get my Ken Burns documentary collection and that site acted like bullets couldn't touch them. Now they're torrent history (for now) and Disney and its buddies have to set their sights elsewhere, and I would hate to lose this site as I get 100% of my TV, music and most of my films here and would be lost without it. So be careful guys. The CFO's, CEO's and all their lawyers have millions to spend on unlimited billable hours and soon enough they will be knocking. False accounts undoubtably exist here already so they can watch and try to upload malware as a first strike. It would be a very sad day for many of us who don't want to feed cash to the media giants that would love to control what, when and how we view our media. The lights are still on but they're getting fewer so just take care and most of all, THANKS.

BigJ0554 avatar@piratelover69 I have a lot of respect for TPB, they have done a great job and keep getting back up, KAT was great because it was smooth easy and looked nice, RARBG is also great but the quality of RARBG uploads aren't as good as Oz or ettv and RARBG files are twice as big, which is doesn't make sense. ET is best and the first uploaders i check are Oz and ettv

DayTripper avatarThis is a good site. I have a feeling it will be the new replacement now that KAT is gone. Unfortunately once this site blows up and everyone realizes it's a great alternative for KAT then it will go into the cross hairs of the government. I hope the Admins here learn from the others mistakes and make the necessary moves to keep that from happening.

assasinanup1 avatar#33 kat was great ! it beat TPB and ET. My personal opinion is that kat was the greatest torrent site in its time. I was a kat user for 2 years and i never found any fakes over there kat had a unique design and most importantly it was a good community. RIP kat you will be missed. That being said ET is the best torrent site available now.
