FireTorrent is a lightweight P2P client built for Firefox (Windows users only, I'm afraid.). Anyone who is a regular torrent downloader should definitely take a look at this. Though still in development, it works completely as far as I've tested it. There are a few annoying bugs, but these really don't pose much of a problem.

What FireTorrent does in layman's terms, is install a hidden version of BitTorrent inside FF. There is no Tools sub-menu for it, so editing configurations must be done thorugh the Add-ons submenu. There isn't actually any configuration required. Just click on your torrent link file, and FF will start downloading it for you. The speeds are pretty good, and it doesn't take up too much memory.

Apparently, FireTorrent works well with FireTray, which minimises FF to the system tray.

Theoretocally, when used with another experimental addon called FireDownload, your download speeds could rocket to 10 times your original speeds. Theoretically.
