    Thank you guys for the kind words. Much appreciated. :emoji_pray:

    @harlan4096 I added it. Thank you for the suggestion. :giggle:

    I have been using qBittorrent, but I'm only torrenting video files. Pretty much only HBO series and Late-night TV talk shows like Conan, Jimmy Kimmel..
    I would prefer the trusted sources but nevertheless I'm trying to using carefully. I don't downloading even sub. files.

    Added:
    I forgot to mention that. I'm also have SysHardener Portable, Process Explorer and WPD.
    Added: Emsisoft Emergency Kit Portable for the Offline BD signatures.

    For the backups; I'm using external WD 2TB HDD and 32GB SanDisk flash drive w/ SanDisk SecureAccess (Encrypted secure vault). Useful tool for the SD USB's.

    Chromium based. Fast, secure and working smoothly. Same as Chrome. This is a good thing for me, :) also Brave is a open-source project. It's offering some good stuff, like privacy (Without Google nor any telemetry), Dark theme, Ad blocking, Fingerprinting protection, Etc.
    Precisely! Blazing speed doesn't hurt either.
