Popular torrent site ‘Torrentz.eu’ on August 4 bid an emotional goodbye to its users when the torrent search engine indirectly announced that it was pulling the plug.
Though there was no ‘official’ announcement, the users were greeted by a sentimental message on their home page that said:
“Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines”
In what looks like a dedication to the torrent site, the main page of the website has been left active, while all its functionality has been closed down.
Torrentz was founded back in 2003 and over the decade became a globally popular torrent search engine.
The website on August 4 came an abrupt end after 13-years and the move surprised many.
While the reason behind them pulling the plug is still not known, one cannot ignore the fact that the step comes in just weeks after KickAssTorrents was shut down.
