If you've got the Transmission web interface running, why not just open the .torrent file there? You can just paste in a .torrent link.

I should also recommend zsh instead of bash as your default terminal shell, you get M-x style commanding in zsh (and a lot of other nice usability features) - especially when you use oh-my-zsh (consider it a starter kit for zsh)

comment Is there anyway to mount a webpage?
Ok, httpfs is not suitable for your task, it will not mount a http directory structure, it will only mount fs style images like ISOs, DMGs etc. What you need really is a script to grab the URLs you want.

The Unarchiver team also provide a command line utility urar that uses the same compression library, so you can extract all those obscure formats from a script.

@Doug - I agree, Cocoa Emacs is a much better way to go. Even if you're a Emacs noob, you shouldn't really get a non-emacs Emacs, it defeats the purpose of learning a cross platform editor.

comment OS X Terminal equivalent of Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right
Esc is never a modifier, it's just going into "Escape" mode when you press it, consider it a modal way of doing things, unlike shift/ctrl/meta etc. (in the Readline scheme of things anyway.)
