“It was good while it lasted”

Torrent websites have ruled the internet ever since the first torrenting platform went online almost 2 decades ago. People from different parts of the globe used to access a wide range of torrent sites to download the content of their choice for free.
Some of the most popular torrenting platforms on the internet included the likes of Pirate Bay, YTS, Internet Archive, extra torrentz2, etc. reigned over the internet as millions of people accessed these websites on a daily basis.
While these sites were ruling the internet, another torrenting platform was emerging from the shadows like a phoenix. Torrentz2, the torrenting giant, came online in the year 2003 and with time, it became one of the best torrenting websites to ever exist.
The website offers tons of great features and allows users to browse from more than 80 popular torrent sites. The site had so much success in a short span that it was named “the Google of torrents” by users.
But the strong feeling of animosity from government agencies followed soon after. The site managed to hide from the agencies for a while up until 2016 when the website was finally taken down.
But there was still hope for the fans as, just after the shut down of the parent platform, a clone of torrentz2 came online which was developed by none other than the fans of the site.
