Bit Torrent sync will be a competitor to Dropbox, SugarSync and Google Drive

Few days ago Bit Torrent presented its new application called  "Sync" that acts like a web storage with an opportunity for peer-to-peer sync files across multiple computers. The service is still in an early alpha stage but it is available for testing.

Sync obviously has serious competition in Dropbox, SugarSync, Google Drive, Apple iCloud and a bunch of other web storage clouds of larger or smaller companies, but it have better prospect from others as the service can be promoted through BitTorrent and uTorrent clients which have more than 170 million active users.

This is the second new service that BitTorrent represents a period of only two weeks. Previously presented plugin for Chrome, called Surf, through which you can download torrents directly through the browser.
