Tribler file sharing client

Tribler is an application which helps you find, share, download, search for pictures, music, videos and so on. In other words its more like a media player integrated within a torrent client. I have tried it out, and frankly, the search and download function is pretty good. The integrated search is quite exhaustive, eg. take a look at the results Tribler came up with when I searched for “Ubuntu” (pic in the screenshots below).

It has Windows, Mac and Linux versions of its software. Here are a few screenshots of the application:
