Akamai Releases Firefox BitTorrent Extension

foxtorrentlogo.png We’ve seen BitTorrent companies strive for respectability (here and here), and now we’re seeing a legit company descend into the murk. There’s probably some unpirated media to be found on BitTorrent, but who are they kidding? Akamai’s FoxTorrent Firefox extension is now available and was obviously included in the $15 million purchase price of Red Swoosh.

UPDATE: FoxTorrent isn’t working on Firefox on my MacBook Pro and it repeatedly asks/attempts to reinstall Red Swoosh. Ultimately all the extension does is screw up window/tab spawning from certain sites.
