Installing BitTorrent Surf on Windows 8

Thanks to everyone who’s tried BitTorrent Surf Alpha for all the early input and great feedback. We’re already hard at work addressing some of your questions. First up: Windows 8.

1) Switch to desktop mode
2) Right click on the Chrome Shortcut to display its context menu
3) Click on “properties” at the bottom of the context menu
4) Select the Compatibility tab
5) check the box for “run this program in compatibility mode for”
6) Select Windows 7

Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
