No option to turn off "Click below to explore what's hot" which wastes your bandwidth showing you what other people are searching for. While looking at this nonsense, I get to have extremely vile, illegal search words come up on my screen.

We need to be able to turn this OFF.

Also, there many other interface issues that seem half-baked and/or don't work including checking port health, etc. and actual incomplete sentences in the settings, etc. It's amateur hour.

Tribler isn't ready for primetime. I'm ditching this and might revisit down the road.

a P2P BitTorrent client that downloads from the developer at only 33 KB/s? This does not bode well.

Should you want to remove Tribler 0.00 from your machine (I'm not being rude that is what it calls itself) may I recommend Cleanapp...

Seriously, this isn't a serious program. As you turn it on for the first time, notice how it forces you to save downloads to Desktop. One of those people who just keeps their desktop completely clear and actually locks it because you have your downloads kept somewhere else? Yeah? Well tough. There they must go, otherwise you will endure a python error and a forced exit. But surely there must be some way that once you grant the app this access, avoiding said Python error, surely then you can go in and change the download location to one of your choosing, right? Wrongamundo dudo!

To me this just seems like some sort of antediluvian P2P system that was around until everyone started using Napster in the late 1990's - until we see *encryption* and widespread take-up what is the point of this? You too will probably be asking yourself this question, if you can be bothered too.

Maybe check back here later to see whether they've actually made this the tool people would actually want.

and

"...what is the point of this?"

Here's a quote from the developers:

"Tribler is a not-for-profit research group in which several universities participate. We are fully supported from EU Commission and Dutch national funds. Our aims are to further research, education and progress in peer-to-peer applications, build EU skill capacity in this important area and reach out globally for cooperation and exchange of ideas. As academics we publish our findings so anyone can follow our progress."

TL;DR, this is an academic research project that isn't intended to be "serious", in the way that you mean.

Still no change. Still no port randomization option, no encrypted connections, only set networks that expose IP addresses. Want's complete access to the internet along all ports. What a perfect setup for a hacker to tunnel into a machine.

I'm amused that the screenshot shows Tribler quite obviously being used to pirate movies. :)

(Might want to take a screenshot of a random free torrent...)

A moderately nice idea, though since it isn't using the encrypted P2P (apparently the public channel online), exposes IP addresses, and uses only a standard port instead of a rotating one... well, even if "legal," it is still going to get banned / blocked by ISPs. We seen this before. Socializing doesn't make up much for its shortcomings where privacy is concerning.
