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.

Qualcomm, not Microsoft, keynoted CES and it was a wonder to behold. 4K became the new 3D. Then 8K became the new 4K. 3 Kickstarter films were nominated for Oscars. The human body got hacked. Online courses hit record enrollments. Extraordinary is the new ordinary. Game on.
For the past six months, we’ve been working on a new web client alpha. Today, we’re excited to invite you to try it. Say hi to Surf. And start downloading content, directly from your browser.
