The Netflix of movie torrents, Popcorn Time, has always been an easy way to stream movies — and now you can do it right from your browser, no extra software required.

The new site, Popcorn In Your Browser, is super easy to use. Head to the home page, search for the movie you want to watch, and then select it. The stream will start to buffer and in a few moments the movie will start playing. That’s it.

There are a couple of major differences with the site you should keep in mind, however. The site doesn’t download the torrent to your computer, so if you want to watch the same movie again, it will have to re-buffer the stream. Also, there is no built-in VPN service like what’s included in the desktop software, so if you’re going to use the Popcorn In Your Browser site, it’s probably best to use a VPN of your own if you’d like to keep your activity private.

It’s important to keep in mind that the Popcorn Time brand operates under anonymity, and different apps are run by different teams — so it’s hard to say who specifically is operating the site. As always, use tools like this at your own risk. Check it out at the link below.

  • Last time I tried popcorn time with the built in VPN it came with built in malware. The fork that doesn’t have the VPN was malware free last time I checked.

    Pretty neat that they can do it right from the browser though.
