Few months ago we reported about 7Track, a Gazelle based General/0Day tracker with a ‘communist’ look to it. However, just a few weeks ago 7Track ceased to exist – it didn't die or anything, it became Anontrack. The migration from 7Track to Anontrack did not result on any data loss – all torrents and users have successfully been moved. Just like the old site, new one also runs on gazelle codebase. It’s worth mentioning that Anontrack retains the ‘red’ look of 7TRack – even the popular ‘sovietski’ skin has made it to the new home.
As of 22/09/2009, AnonTrack tracks over 1300 active torrents and has a user base exceeding 1500 registered members. Torrents include movies, music, E-books, games and other general content. You can find most of the usual scene and p2p releases here but there are lots of uncommon torrents indexed as well. For example this tracker has a lot of of books on hacking, reverse engineering, etc that are not usually available on other general trackers (I don’t know if the name Anontrack has any relation to (or is inspired by ) the famous hacking group ‘Anon’ aka ‘Anonymous’ ). Screenshot of part of the torrent index is given below:
When 7Track launched back in 2008, it was one of the first few private trackers to use Gazelle codebase. No doubt this itself attracted a lot of users for the tracker. However now the situation is different- Gazelle trackers are fairly common in the BitTorrent scene and AnonTrack would have to work extra hard to attract more users to the tracker. And they definitely do need more leechers if the site is to survive in the long run.
As mentioned in the title of this article, AnonTrack is currently open for registration. All new users get 5 invites and 2GB upload credit upon signup.
