You may want to browse and do any internet activity comfortably even when your download manager or torrent client is downloading huge files from internet. However, Even if you are on a broadband connection with unlimited bandwidth, the speed can reduce drastically when you do things like downloading torrents, so your web browsing activity is slow as snail. This is quite frustrating that we should at least be able to browse the internet while we are downloading our stuff.
This situation can improve if you can set Internet Speed Priority in a way that you get to set download/upload transfer rate priority for any applications. Applications with a higher network priority will then gain more traffic bandwidth than those with a lower one. NetBalancer is right here to help you. No more having to pause Bittorrent whenever you browse the web, just lower their network priority with NetBalancer.
