If you are an user of a private tracker. You know that is difficult to maintain a proper ratio. Under windows they are a couple of software (ratiomaster, mRadio etc...) to cheating and report fake upload to tracker to avoid loose ability to download. This add on does the same thing but in Firefox and cross platform (windows/mac/linux). How is it working ? The bittorrent protocol is basic and trust the user (his torrent client) too report the uploaded data. So this extension reports fake upload values and keeps your ratio up and running. How to use ? The add on after installed will monitor your download and detect torrent files. If the torrent comes from a private tracker (only !!!) it will add to the list of shared files et will regulary (30 minutes on average) will report to the tracker some upload stat and update the current status of your torrent : uploaded, total seeders and leechers.
