Well, not IsoHunt itself – founder Gary Fung shut the filesharing site down recently after lengthy legal battles, and isn’t bringing it back any time soon. But a group of developers have launched what you could call a tribute site, IsoHunt.to. “IsoHunt has been a great part of the torrent world for more than a decade. It’s a big loss to everyone who used it over the years. Media corporations don’t like innovative or competition and isoHunt’s fate is one of the examples of how they deal with it,” they tell TorrentFreak. “IsoHunt can definitely be called a filesharing icon. People got used to it and they don’t want to simply let it go. We want those people to feel like being at home while visiting isohunt.to. The main goal is to restore the website with torrents and provide users with the same familiar interface.” If the site takes off, expect it to be subject to similar legal action (and potentially ISP blocks) as its inspiration.
