“FrostWire will connect to all the major BitTorrent indexes of the internet and pre-fetch torrents (via the libtorrent DHT or via HTTP if it can’t find it on the DHT), it will then index locally all the available metadata that’s indexed by the torrent file, as the user searches, the local index gets better and better to yield richer and instant results“.
