FileChef is an application that makes it really easy to download almost anything you want without needing a torrent client. It doesn’t list links for direct downloads, either. The only thing that FileChef does is open a tab in Google on your preferred browser with very specific search parameters. These search parameters are generated by FileChef and will help you quickly access third party download directories in which you’ll typically find what you’re looking for.
The FileChef interface is very simple. There is a text box in which you can type whatever you want to download and a series of categories that you can check to help focus your search (movies, software, images, music, etc.). When you click the search button, the app will redirect you to your browser. And from there, on your own browser, you can download whatever you want.
FileChef is a great application if you can’t use a torrent client for whatever reason, since you can use it to download just about anything you can think of.
