Fragments is a minimal and basic BitTorrent client by which you can download torrents either through the magnet link, or the torrents files. The launch screen will show these options.
For magnet links, you can copy them. They will then be added for downloads. If there are no other torrent clients installed, then torrent files will automatically open in Fragments.
After adding the torrents for downloading, clicking on them will display the different details like the number of seeders, leechers, download/ upload speed, and more. The pause/resume button will pause or resume the downloading. The Remove button will delete the added torrent.
To access and configure different options in Fragments, click on the square icon from the top right of the main window and choose Preferences.
These options are of two main categories:
General: Change the appearance to the dark mode or choose a different download folder. You can also increase or decrease the parallel downloads from here.
Notification settings too can be changed from this section.
Network: Change the encryption settings from here.
Overall, this is a fairly minimal and easy-to-use BitTorrent client for downloading torrents. There are other more comprehensive torrent clients too like Tixati.
