The community backed Kickass Torrents has been launched in December 2016.
A large group of original Kickass Torrents staffers has launched a reincarnation of the infamous torrent site, hoping to restore it to its former glory. The new site uses a fresh and secure database, but the look and feel of the platform remains the same.
The original Kickass Torrents has been shut down on July 20th 2016.
Kickass Torrents (KAT) is a well-know torrent site indexing thousands of torrents verified and commented by a large file-sharing community. KAT continues to innovate and release new features. Beside The Pirate Bay, Kickass Torrents has grown to one of the most popular torrent sites.
What makes a difference to The Pirate Bay is the fact that Kickass Torrents deals with DMCA takedown requests while The Pirate Bay yet refuses to delete any torrent. Anyhow there’s a vast content collection provided by KATs community that potentially tops the catalog of The Pirate Bay.
Third-party malware and adult adverts annoy many visitors but decreased in recent times. Registered users will have the most ads removed.
Kickass Torrents downloads are provided as .torrent file downloads and magnet links. Due to its popularity and recurring DDoS attacks, KAT.cr suffers downtimes every now and then.
