BitTorrent is a file sharing program introduced by Bram Cohen on July 2, 2001, that shares files between networked computer users. What makes bitTorrent successful is the distributed nature of the sharing. Rather than downloading the file from a single source, users upload parts of the file to others who are downloading it, even if it hasn't finished fully downloading.
