BTJunkie Closes: Fifth Largest BitTorrent Search Engine Gone

Things are changing since the Megaupload shutdown: QuickSilverScreen is no more, Filesonic and Fileserve users can only download files they've uploaded, and now, BTJunkie has voluntarily closed.

Started in 2005 after Suprnova was killed, BTJunkie was indexing around 4 million active torrents. And unlike the big four remaining sites — Pirate Bay, Torrentz, KickassTorrents and IsoHunt — the site was never involved in any legal action says TorrentFreak.

Gizmodo even named BTJunkie one of the Top 5 Pirate Bay alternatives. All good things must come to an end it seems. -Thanks for the tip Adam
